There’s nothing ‘petite’ about the Pedroncelli family’s ‘Special Selection’ Petite Sirah. It boasts big, bold dark fruit flavors – and a long history of huge accolades, too (including ‘Best of Class,’ gold-medal honors in San Francisco and 91 points from Wine & Spirits magazine.
What makes this Petite Sirah such a ‘special selection’? It may be the vintage – 2014 was another outstanding year for Golden State wine. Or it could also be the family. The Pedroncellis are iconic in Sonoma wine circles. They bought their first vineyard in 1927 and survived Prohibition by selling grapes to home winemakers. As Robert Parker notes, the Pedroncelli family “have always had a humble philosophy in terms of pricing. Dollar-for-dollar, the Pedroncelli wines consistently offer both character and quality … something consumers should never forget.” And speaking of Sonoma, it’s one of California’s most prized wine regions.
Whatever you pin this rich red’s greatness on, it’s a must taste – especially for fans of seriously intense, blockbuster reds. Look forward to layers of ripe plum and blueberry with hints of white pepper and luscious chocolate notes. An impressive partner for a thick, juicy steak or roast rack of lamb.
