Parducci Wine Cellars True Grit

Parducci Wines’ True Grit pays homage to legendary screen actor John Wayne. Tom and Tim Thornhill, owners of Parducci Wine Cellars, were once told that their Petite Sirah was the “John Wayne of red wines,” and there you have it, the rest is history.

The Thornhill’s follow the same “blue horizon” thinking that stirred so many settlers to move west; a vision of the future, involves a respect for the land that will in turn produce healthy vineyards, and superior fruit. Parducci’s viticultural practices are rooted in the belief that great wines begin with healthy vineyards. Cover crops are planted to enrich the soil and support biodiversity in the vineyard. Habitat is preserved and created for beneficial insects and birds which act as effective, natural pest control. Domestic animals contribute nutrients to the soil, so synthetic fertilizers are not needed. And along with leftover grape skins, seeds and stems from the winemaking process, the animals contribute to the compost operation that naturally feeds the vines. A well-planned constructed wetlands area reclaims water from the winemaking process making it a sustainable source of water for the vineyards. This self-contained ecosystem at Parducci vineyards results in healthy vineyards that produce superior fruit for better wines.

Winemaker Notes – True Grit Reserve
True Grit Reserve wines are the product of very selective fruit sourcing and hands-on winemaking. Each vintage gives the full range of expression for a fearlessly distinct wine.

Parducci Reserve True Grit Petite Sirah 2012 has heady aromas of ripe fruit, white pepper and vanilla, followed by an intense rush of fresh blackberry, dark chocolate, pepper and caramel flavors. SRP $29

Parducci Reserve True Grit Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 offers rich flavors of dark carob and cassis with a meaty cherry and vanilla finish framed by a substantial yet velvety bed of tannins. SRP $30
