Parducci True Grit Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah were both awarded GOLD medals at "the largest and most influential international wine competition in America, the San Francisco International Wine Competition (SFIWC)."
"Now in its 37th year, the SFIWC maintains the highest level of integrity with a blind-tasting system performed by a highly experienced panel of internationally acclaimed wine experts."
"A SFIWC medal has been established as a reliable indication of wine excellence, and wines recognized as medal-worthy by our judges are universally understood to be among the very best."
Truly Net strongly recommends a pair of Parducci True Grit reds as the ideal bottles for a holiday family meal this year.
2012 True Grit Reserve Petite Sirah: "Flush with full fruit, this velvety wine has a bit of Syrah as well (8%) and just a touch of Grenache (1%). Aged in a mix of New American oak and seasoned French/American, it’s well-balanced and can definitely hold up to a few more years of time in the bottle but is eminently drinkable now. Official tasting notes mention 'white pepper and vanilla, followed by an intense rush of fresh blackberry, dark chocolate, pepper and caramel flavors'- but when we opened ours, a bit of time aerating brought out a bit more of the spice."
2012 Cabernet Sauvignon: "Classically built, this is a deep and dark, meaty wine ideal for pairing with the Christmas lamb, and there are plenty of tannins to work around and feel...The True Grit wines seem a drinkable embodiment of the Mendocino ethos with an Italian heritage- solid, uncomplicated, and satisfying."

"2012 True Grit Reserve Red is an enticing blend of wild berry, plum and black cherry, with a smooth and inviting finish. I give this wine a rating of 90 points."
"2013 True Grit Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is full-bodied, complex and expressive with hints of blackberry, spice and currant, followed by a smooth yet powerful finish with integrated tannins. I give this wine a rating of 91 points."
"2013 True Grit Reserve Petite Sirah is stunning in the glass with its dark, brooding, almost black-garnet hue that leads to a bold, rich and luscious wine that serves up intense blueberry, vibrant blackberry and deep dark chocolate, and finishes with hints of white pepper and clove. This wine is not for the faint of heart and should be decanted before serving. I give this wine a rating of 93 points."
Harmon goes on to say: "All of these wines are a 'Double Must Buy' except the superb 2013 True Grit Reserve Petite Sirah that comes with a 'Triple Must Buy.'"
