Pedroncelli "Block 007 Estate" Cabernet Sauvignon - Dry Creek Valley


We farm 29 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon on our estate and were the rstto plant the king of red wine grapes in Dry Creek Valley circa 1965. Block 007 was established in 1992 on the Scott Henry trellis system which splits the cordon arms into a double tier with the upper arm usually bearing about 3 tons of grapes per acres while the lower arm bears about 2 tons per acre. This is for optimum production and ripeness. The soil is well drained and located next to Canyon Creek where it is gravelly and ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. Blackberry and plum aromas with notes of dry green herbs and pepper rounding out the nose. Berry flavors combine with toasty oak and hints of thyme and oregano, typical of this vineyards personality. The long finish with lasting fruit is simply elegant. Good acidity and medium tannins lead to great aging potential. Obviously this wine has no connection to a world famous British Special Agent. Its simply the name of a vineyard007, Block 007.

John Pedroncelli, Senior Winemaker, 1925-2015 

John began his winemaking career as a child working side by side with his father, John Sr. learning from the ground up.  After World War II and his service in the US Coast Guard, he graduated from Santa Rosa Junior College and then attended many winemaking classes at University of California at Davis.  John's style is Pedroncelli's style-wines that are flavorful and balanced to reflect the region's characteristics-he allows the wines to speak for themselves.
