Parducci’s Coro Red is a bullseye

Parducci adds its distinctive voice to Coro Mendocino, America’s first juried regional wine project with the Parducci Coro Red.

In creating the Parducci rendition of Coro Mendocino, they select warm climate Mediterranean varietals blended to best express the contrasting nature of what Mendocino County wines can be while at the same time expressing wines of great texture, structure, and balance.

A 90-point designee from Wine Enthusiast, the 2015 vintage Coro Red has re-entered the Boulder County market.

Full-bodied and dense with rich, ripe flavors of black plums and berries and generous oak, this Mendocino County original has a long and juicy, yet firm finish. Its bold, boisterous profile has a serious concentration and firm tannins. Blended from Zinfandel and Rhône varieties, it is ready for that special toast, or cellarable through 2023.

It teams perfectly with any prestige meal. Enjoy it with a grass-fed beef filet with roasted garlic, duck breast with grilled peaches, or an eggplant and goat cheese gratin.

The 2015 Parducci Coro Red is available locally at larger, family-owned wine emporiums, like Wyatt’s Wet Goods, whose knowledgeable, friendly staff take the intimidation out of wine buying.
