2009 Pedroncelli Zinfandel Mother Clone Dry Creek Valley

I've always favored this winery from my first visit thirty years ago. They established their wine dynasty in the town of Healdsburg carrying on their fine Italian tradition of producing great varietals. This "Mother Clone" is no exception and displays flavor forward characteristics of peppery, plum scented zinfandel. The finish continues on with more spice and black currant flavors.

So good - acidic, earthy, herbaceous, bright plum and blackberry fruit.

2007 Core Ground Around Santa Barbara County Tempranillo Blend, Tempranillo
Perhaps the bottle was flawed or in a bad phase, but this was very disappointing. I agree with a previous note which said "sour, flat." Poured out the rest of the bottle.

Some people recommend setting the bottle upright a week before serving, then pouring the wine into a decanter in one pour (not pouring and stopping repeatedly, as this will shake up the sediment). Try to stop pouring before any sediment makes it into the decanter. There might be half a glass left in the bottle, but that's the sacrifice you have to make. Enjoy

This bottle may have been corked or a case of bottle shock. It arrived from Wine.Woot over two weeks ago so I thought I would give it a shot. Wine was cloudy but still had a nice boquet. No decanting but it remained cloudy over the next two hours as my wife and I finished the bottle. Definitely seemed disjointed. Let's hope the other bottles in this shipment are not of similar condition.
