MY SUMMER FAV
Posted Sep 23, 2015

"Initially tasted it this past spring and has been my go-to for the summer. I've been enjoying it with an ice cube on these warm summer evenings."

VERY NICE

"There was a tasting at the Empire store on 4/3 and both my wife and I were most impressed with the Pedroncelli Zin. Not too dry, flavorful with a warm finish."

GREW ON ME, BIG TIME

REALLY LIKED IT!
Posted Feb 17, 2015

"One of my favorites. For 5 drinkers to have had trouble finishing a glass I wonder if the previous reviewer got a bad bottle?"

LIGHT AND GOOD!
Posted Feb 6, 2013

"Had this at a friends house recently and was pleasantly surprised (don't usually buy noir's on my own). Lighter wine that I think most will enjoy regardless of preference."

LOVE IT FOR THE PRICE!
Posted Feb 6, 2013

"While this is by no means an expensive Vodka it's one of my favorites! Very smooth with a bitter-sweet flavor."

"Must be the odd one here because I didn't discover this at Olive Garden! :-) While it's not a go-to for me, I do acknowledge it's mass appeal."

GOOD BUT NOT GREAT
Posted Oct 27, 2011

"Like previous reviewer said, this Pinot does the job at the price point. I enjoyed the bottle but wouldn't go out of my way to track it down in the future."
