Pedroncelli 2020 Petite Syrah
2020 Pedroncelli Family Petite Sirah Dry Creek Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 92+ Points
This rather dramatic bottling is built for service with grilled steaks, barbecued meats and darkly caramelized roasts. The aromas are a potent, focused mix of black raspberry, pomegranate syrup and Santa Rosa plum jam braced by lots of fresh-cracked black peppercorn, the whole poised above dark mineral undercurrents. The mid-palate is amply populated by all of these flavor elements while the combination of zest, tannin and minerality creates a boldly gutsy impression. The finish is long and cutting dry and the result is a wine that cries out for service with food as flavorful as it is. Enjoy it now or watch it evolve over the next five years and beyond. 100 cases produced.
