Wine Oh.tv lists the 2011 Parducci Coro Mendocino as a "Must-Try" Zinfandel Wine Blend: "The concept of CORO Mendocino is simple: make Zinfandel-based blends using an approved list of varietals that are grown in Mendocino county and make them taste great. Put them all in the same kind of bottle, with the same label and same packaging. It started as a conversation between longtime friends and winemakers in Mendocino’s Ukiah Valley and grew into a movement."
Wine Oh.tv notes that the 2011 Parducci Coro Mendocino "really smells like [a] Zin, with jammy fruit and generous peppery spice. Appealing from start to finish, it has good structure, energetic flavors good acid and a smooth mid-palate. It fires on all cylinders."

Parducci rep and Colorado Springs School alum Jess Arnsteen recently hosted a field day for CSS students exploring Parducci Wine Cellars.
Joohyung K., Junior, Class of 2016 wrote a touchingly vivid account of the day's excursion, breaking down the science of biomimicry into understandable chunks, and conveying many sense memories of the winery's organic garden and wetlands waterfalls.
Thanks to all involved in providing a stellar day "working the land" for CSS's students!!!
Lifestyle blog Happy Mothering enthusiastically endorsed Parducci Wine Cellars True Grit 2012 Reserve Petite Sirah and 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon this week, calling them both "absolutely delicious" and noting that the line's masculine name (an homage to legendary film actor John Wayne) might be good incentive for wine-shy guys to try a glass.
Both wines are suggested as ideal pairings for a Valentine's Day dinner, "or any night of the year."
Thanks, Happy Mothering--and Happy Valentine's day to you, too!
Parducci Wine Cellars was honored with the 2014 Governor's Environmental and Economic Leadership Award (GEELA) this past Wednesday, January 21, 2015. This marks the third GEELA win for PWC and Mendocino Wine Company, in the category of Agricultural Ecosystem Services.
“We are honored to play our part in reclaiming and sustaining a healthy environment,” said Tim Thornhill upon receiving the award. “This award is an affirmation of Mendocino Wine Company’s and the Thornhill family’s commitment to our environment and community.”
Mendocino Wine Compnay is the nation's first carbon-neutral winery, reclaiming 100% of the water used in its winery cellars via an on-site system of constructed wetlands; it has also been recognized by the Audobon Society for the role that habitat plays in the annual bird count.
The Governor’s Environmental and Economic Leadership Award Program is California's highest environmental honor. The program recognizes individuals, organizations, and businesses that have demonstrated exceptional leadership and made notable, voluntary contributions in conserving California's precious resources, protecting and enhancing our environment, building public-private partnerships and strengthening the State's economy.
D'Vine Wine Time--"Where affordable California wines meet everyday people"--gives both high praise and very high ratings (on their scale of 1 to 5 bottles) to Parducci Wine Cellars True Grit 2012 Petite Sirah Reserve and True Grit 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve.
True Grit 2012 Petite Sirah Reserve received a four bottle rating: "This inky purple wine, in color, is strikingly beautiful. A nose of cassis and black cherry with hints of leather; making you want to sit down in a big, puffy leather arm chair while sipping on a glass."
True Grit 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon shone with a five bottle rating: "A marvelous Cabernet! Dark, garnet red with a nose of wet cedar, blackberry pie and an old leather baseball glove. On the palate the wine is juicy and lush."
Both wines are described as "masculine," and pairing well with beef: "Definitely John Wayne Approved!"
We tip our (ten gallon) hat to D'Vine Wine Time--glad you enjoyed True Grit!
Winelines Online gave great reviews and high ratings to a couple of Parducci Wine Cellars True Grit reds:
2012 Parducci ‘True Grit’ Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Mendocino County
"Dark flowers, tobacco leaf, herbal notes, dark berries, milk chocolate and a bit of dustiness show themselves in this Cab. In the back end, earthy, medium-grained tannins emerge. The wine is lighter than expected in the mouth, making it a sublime companion to food." Wine Lines rating: 88
2012 Parducci ‘True Grit’ Reserve Petite Sirah, Mendocino County
"Opaque crimson-black in the glass, this wine is peppery yet sweet in the nose, with a prickly Zin-like petulance. Jammy fruit notes of black plum and fig intermingle with dark berries and a whiff of toasted nuts and dark flowers. This is a wine that is light enough to drink now with roasted/grilled game meats." Wine Lines rating: 91
