Mendocino County's aptly-named Inspiration Highway is lined with several stellar wineries, but Parducci Wine Cellars stands out as one of the oldest--when owner Tim Thornhill took it over, he not only worked to restore the winery's history, but also transformed Parducci into one of the world's most environmentally friendly wineries. This combination of history and innovation has resulted in the creation of some truly spectacular wines--come visit the winery, view its certified wildlife habitat, and taste for yourself!

John Compisi of the Ukiah Daily Journal reports that the Coro Mendocino winemakers recently held the third blending meeting for the 2013 vintage at Parducci Cellars. From its start in the year 2000, this collaborative wine program aims "to produce a variety of small lot signature wines that preserve the heritage of Mendocino's founding vintners " with strict protocols for grape varieties and blending percentages, among other factors.
Eight current Coro producers, including Parducci Wine Cellars, attended the meeting. Flights were poured from eight brown paper wrapped bottles and commented upon before the bottles' identities were revealed.
Coro production protocol specifies a minimum 40 percent Zinfandel and includes severlal other pre-approved grapes such as Carignan, Dolcetto, and Primitivo.
Compisi noted a dramatic change since the meeting in January: "Clearly the individual winemakers listened and adapted their blend based upon their own assessment and the unbiased feedback from their peers. One winemaker adjusted the wood (barrels) he was using while adjusting the specific wines in the blend. Another racked and re-racked the wine to highlight one characteristic while minimizing another less desirable one. The collaboration among winemakers between these blending meetings was quite evident and was actually very fascinating. They trust and respect each others' knowledge and experience. The final blends will surely benefit from this collaboration."

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."
