Mazzocco Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Maria 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This beautifully terraced vineyard overlooking the heart of Dry Creek Valley yields extraordinary fruit. It's an outstanding site for growing Zinfandel, yielding fruit-forward sumptuous, full-figured wines. The grapes were hand-harvested and fermented with native yeast in stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine was aged for 15 months in French oak barrels and bottled unfined.

Although Mazzocco is a small family-owned winery, our vineyard sources are among the best in the world.Most of Mazzocco’s grapes come from owners Ken and Diane Wilson’s diverse Wilson Family Estate Vineyards in Sonoma County’s Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys. These valleys are renowned for producing superior quality fruit. Mazzocoo winery is nestled in the rolling hills of Sonoma County, perched on a saddle between the acclaimed valleys of Dry Creek and Alexander. In 2005, Mazzocco was brought into the Wilson family, who were eager to add the Zinfandel vines surrounding the winery. Renown for its single vineyard-designate Zinfandels—wines so robust and sumptuous, they’re unforgettable. Mazzocco Zins are remarkably individual in nature—a characteristic shared with their award-winning Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. “It’s the fruit,” confesses winemaker Antoine Favarro. Indeed, Mazzocco draws from some of the most breathtaking mountain vineyards in Sonoma County. It’s the fruit combined with history and tradition, seasoned with a little innovation, that makes Mazzocco one of the most distinctive and sought-after brands in California.

Tasting Notes:

Harmonious aromas of currant and ripe plums open to a fleshy core of blueberry jam with hints of chocolate on the palate. The floral finish is long, silky and complex, exhibiting violets, iris and cinnamon spice with hints of vanilla bean.
