The 2009 Peroncelli friends.red, 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.
