Ripe with licorice and plum fruit on the nose, then turning spicy and showing a touch of caramel evolution. Bright and vibrant on entry with tart acids supporting fruit that's right on the line between fresh and aged retaining plenty of lightly peppery red fruit and softer, ripe plum notes emerging on the palate. The tannins are really silky at this point, probably pretty much at peak and turning a bit earthy on the modest finish and rather structure driven, with some bubble gum vanilla and bay leaf oak showing through. 88pts

In 1899, the two managed to acquire hillside acreage nearby overlooking Alexander Valley from the west.

The dark ruby/purple-colored 1998 Mazzoni Home Ranch (71% Zinfandel, 21% Carignan, and 8% Petite Sirah) exhibits fat, sweet aromas of melted road tar, black currants, cherry jam, and licorice.
