2009 Pedroncelli ""

The 2009 Peroncelli, Sonoma County went down way too easily with home made pizza tonight. Cranberry red in color, this inexpensive blend of Merlot, Zinfandel, Syrah and Sangiovese has a nose featuring spicy Zin fruit, black pepper and a good whiff of alcohol. Red fruit on the palate. Good acidity probably comes from the Sangiovese. No hint of oak. Quite nice with the pizza. Would probably make a nice partner with grilled foods or BBQ. I wouldn't go so far as to say this is a complex wine, but it's a fun ride for $12.
