I am always looking for a good “green” wine. I am a huge proponent of organic and natural foods but it is sometimes hard to find an enjoyable environmentally friendly wine. Parducci is a family owned winery in Ukiah, CA that is committed to sustainable winegrowing practices. They use 100% green power, use earth friendly packaging, and are the 1st US carbon neutral winery. I am excited to try their 2007 Petite Sirah and am hoping it is a green wine that delivers both taste and value.
Parducci’s 2007 Petite Sirah is from Mendicino County. It was bottled in November of 2009 and has 13.5% alcohol content. The wine retails for $10.99 and you can find more information about the wine at www.Parducci.com
Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine
The Parducci pours a dark plum. It has a nose of dark berries and cherries with hints of spice and dark chocolate. This Petite Sirah opens up big and bold tastes of cherries, plum, and blackberries. The wine has supple tannins and a spicy, dry finish. This green winery has made a pretty good first impression….and yet another nice Petite Sirah that won’t break the bank.
My Wine Rating- B
