2018 Rosé, Signature Selection
A Long Tradition of Rosé. When it comes to appreciating this style of wine, we have it down to an art. We have been producing rosé since 1954 and have more than 60 vintages under our belt. We look for a style that captures the essence of fruit and is crisp and a touch spicy.
Pale pink in color with bright aromas of cherry and rose petals. Flavors feature strawberry and cherry upfront with a hint of white pepper spice. Refreshing, clean, and crisp with a touch of spiciness on the finish. Our Rosé is made to be enjoyed upon release.
The grapes for our Rosé were harvested from the Pedroncelli home ranch. The site’s well-drained rocky soils, hillsides, and excellent microclimate enable zinfandel to develop generous fruit flavors.
The year brought mild temperatures and a longer growing season with optimal results in the grapes. The vineyard blocks chosen for our Rosé were picked on the 5th of September to preserve acidity, obtain lower sugars, and highlight varietal flavors. The result is excellent quality with an intensity of aromas and acidity.
Once destemmed and pressed, the juice is transferred to temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for slow fermentation. The fruitiness of the zinfandel grape lends a rounded and balanced flavor in the wine. Bottled a few months after harvest, the wine captures the freshness of the vintage.
Appellation: Dry Creek Valley
Total Acidity: .660g/100ml
About The Winery
Winery: Pedroncelli Winery & Vineyards
Owners: Pedroncelli Family
Location: Sonoma, CA
The year was 1927. President Calvin Coolidge captured the imagination of nobody. Babe Ruth hit home run after home run powered by little more than whiskey and sausage. And John Pedroncelli, Sr. bought a vineyard and winery in Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County. Since then, four generations of Pedroncellis have weathered Prohibition, wine booms and busts, and changing tastes. And they’re still a family-owned operation making acclaimed premium wines. Wherever you are now, Sultan of Swat and Silent Cal, this next glass is for you.
@wyk3d This is the second time a wine I bought from casemates wouldn’t ship to Illinois when offered on meh. It doesn’t seem to make any sense… like offering wine on meh instead of leaving it on casemates. Unless shipping rules change month to month, there’s some fuckery going on. When a bluetooth speaker shows up on casemates with shipping restrictions, perhaps we’ll know more.
Ok, I just wanted to say fuckery. It’s a good thing I already have too much wine and a case on the way. Now how do we get one of these sites to start offering bourbon?
@warpedrotors Apparently this got sent to the “junk” box so I just now got your message, but I completely get it… Everyone not in Chicago hates Chicago and everyone in Chicago hates someone else in Chicago enough to shoot them!
@shubydoo I’m sure Meh wouldn’t arbitrarily decide to cut off that many potential customers. Probably something to do with liquor laws and regulations in the particular state. Thank your government for that. And some people think we need more government and all its bureaucrats.
@alwinMUH paper + cardboard. Lately they’ve been shipping on hideous styrofoam boxes - such a waste. Hopefully this will be fully recyclable though (big heavy cardboard box + light cardboard dividers inside)
@alwinMUH I work in the backend of a large shipper (cough FDX cough) and see a lot of different packages. I have dealt with a lot of leaking boxes from walmart and all manner of other retailers, but I have never seen a box from any of the wine shippers that use us leak. I would order wine (if my state allowed it) long before i would order dish soap and have it shipped.
I read your post and thought to myself, “is there even such a thing as a classic, dry White Zin, I thought that stuff was dreamed up by the US wine industry to expand the appeal of wine-drinking to a wider market? Isn’t a dry, tart, pink wine a Rose by any other name?”
So I looked it up, where else, on Wiki, which says it can be dry, and that it was invented inadvertently in 1948 by Sutter Home, which still dominates the White Zin Market. (What luck have you had finding a dry wine labeled White Zin? I don’t think I’ve seen one. Not that I was looking.)
And then a little further along in the rabbit hole I learned that Sutter Home’s “accident” was in the midst of making a Rose in the oeil-de-perdrix style (yes for all you francophones, that is the eye of a partridge). Which is a very old method. And that like a lot of wineries, Sutter Home published a memoir with some pretty pictures It includes a chapter on the White Zin phenomenon.
That was a fun and edifying diversion for me, thanks for inspiring it!
@xander BTW you can hit Edit after you see the result. But only I think for a few minutes before it becomes locked. Even if you make no changes, when you save it again, you will usually get a new image. (It seems if you try a few times it will loop back to the first one you got.)
@mike808 White wines have pH ranging the about 2.6 to 3.7 and reds from about 3.2 to 4.0.
But tartness and pH are only somewhat related - the Titratable Acidity matters here as well, along with any residual sugar.
Last time we got this from casemates it was more expensive and we went through it super fast. Ordering the max. (With my free shipping, it comes out to $7.42/bottle, I can’t get decent wines at the local stores even when they’re open for that little!)
Thanks for updating the states that you can ship too. Couldn’t understand why every other Pedroncelli offer could ship to Illinois but this one couldn’t… Glad I checked back to try and get the offer again! Thanks WineDavid
Call me a sucker for a meh/Casemates crossover, but we’ve had it with stay-at-home and need some serious wine buying to get us through this whole spring-summer whatever it is in Illinois since we’re now on the ‘buy’ list.
Was excited to get our wine today. Until we opened a bottle. This is almost undrinkable. Leaves a nasty metal after taste in your mouth. This is horrible. We are deciding how to get rid of it. Gift it, or just throw it away. I feel ripped off. Live and learn I guess. Thanks Meh…no more wine for me…
It arrived Thursday. Not sure how that tiny UPS gal drags stuff like that around.
Would Monsieur care to sniff ze bottle cap? It’s a dry wine, not for the faint of heart. For me that’s a good thing; it slows me down and keeps me from snockered. I am thoroughly enjoying it.
