One of my favorites! Has a slightly sweet maple taste but with good depth for a zinfandel. I had been a wine club member of mazzocco, so not sure if I would pay the retail $40, but it is a great wine!! Pairs well with pork and gorgonzola.
External Reviews for Mazzocco Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Maple Vineyard
This is loaded with briary wild berry and blueberry aromas and jammy flavors that offer appealing layers of black raspberry, licorice and cracked pepper. The tannins are firm but ripe. Drink now through 2012. 450 cases made.
A: not at all ebullient aromatically; some hints of dark fruit and sweetness but mostly the wine is keeping its secrets in reserve. B: Until you sip. Impressively cool, sweet entry with a lot of blueberry in the black cherries, some clove and allspice, dry earth, figs and pomegranate - good complexity with harmony to boot, and it all carries through to the finish. Plenty of bramble and texture and enough tannin to undergird everything else. C: a full-spectrum Zin experience that also has distinct personality from the vineyard and the vintage. Drinking very, very well.
Our 14-acre estate, known as Briar Ranch, surrounds the winery located in the heart of Dry Creek Valley. The fruit from this vineyard was combined to create an expressive, richly textured wine. The grapes were hand-harvested and fermented with native yeast in stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine was aged for 18 months in French oak barrels and bottled unfined.
Berrylicious! Aromas of ripe cherry, Boysenberry and raspberry opens to a mouth-watering pool of lush tannins infused with Sarsaparilla, vanilla bean and bitter chocolate. This wine is symbolic of Dry Creek Zinfandels possessing jammy fruit-forward notes that linger endlessly on the long, fleshy finish.
800 cases produced.
Aged in French Oak.
