Dan Berger's Vintage Experiences gave high praise to three Parducci wines this week, calling the 2012 Parducci Small Lot Blend Pinot Gris "Exceptional" while describing both the 2010 Parducci Reserve Pinot Noir and 2010 Small Lot Blend Merlot as "Very Highly Recommended."
Berger describes the water conservation improvements that the winery's chief operating officer Tim Thornhill has implemented, also noting that "the wines now coming out of Parducci are better than ever, most following the style set down decades ago by John Parducci, now 95 and the patron saint of the project."

WINEMAKER BOB SWAIN SPEAKS FROM THE CELLAR about what's new for winter 2013 at Parducci.
Q: What are you and the winemaking team up to this time of year?
A: We are blending the 2012 whites, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay as well as prepping the 2012 Pinot Noirs. We have either bottled or are about to bottle many of the 2012 whites, and it is proving to be a fantastic vintage in terms of quality and volume.
Q: What are some of the early characteristics of the 2012 vintage?
A: The whites have great aromatics and balance, while the reds are some of the darkest wines we have had in years.
Q: What new releases are you especially looking forward to sharing this spring?
A: We also just blended the 2010 Small Lot Blend Petite Sirah, and it is a big boy! Boatloads of pepper spice and jammy texture; it will be one to look for.
