The Wines
Prices range from $19 to $50

1. 2013 Mazzocco Chardonnay (Alexander Valley) – This is just classic Alexander Valley Chardonnay.  Vibrant flavors of honeysuckle, Asian pear and tangerine lead the way to Meyer lemon, passion fruit, and vanilla bean notes in the mouth. This delightfully crisp Chardonnay finishes with tropical fruit, key lime with hints of French oak.
Tasting Price: $17.99/bottle | $16.99 in mixed 6-packs | $15.99 in mixed cases

2. 2012 Mazzocco Zinfandel (Dry Creek Valley) – Mazzocco makes close to 25 different Zinfandels from different vineyard sources.  This is their entry level Zin, but it does not behave like an entry level anything!  Full bodied and boasting a nose of ripe and warm raspberry, blueberry, spice and chocolate, it hits the palate with a rush of ripe fruit and brambly spice.  Trust us folks, this outclasses many Zins that sell for a lot more.
Tasting Price: $22.49/bottle | $21.24 in mixed 6-packs | $19.99 in mixed cases

3. 2012 Mazzocco Cabernet Sauvignon (Dry Creek Valley) – Mazzocco’s Cab comes from choice vineyard sites scattered throughout the Dry Creek Valley.  Perfectly balanced, it exhibits perfectly ripened berry fruit, vanilla, chocolate, and exotic spice on the nose and palate.  Full bodied, but supple in texture, this would make for a great cocktail Cab.
Tasting Price: $22.49/bottle | $21.24 in mixed 6-packs | $19.99 in mixed cases

4. 2012 Mazzocco Zinfandel “Warm Spring” (Dry Creek Valley) –  This is where we get serious!  This tiny production Zinfandel is loaded with flavor and bravado.  Pure raspberry, chocolate covered cherry, cinnamon and other Indian spices all burst out of the glass leading into a soft, supple, and decadent palate.  For fans of big, rich, jammy Zins, you really don’t want to miss this!
Tasting Price: $35.99/bottle | $33.99 in mixed 6-packs | $31.99 in mixed cases

5. 2012 Mazzocco Zinfandel “Pony” (Dry Creek Valley) – Josh says this is probably the best Zinfandel he’s tasted all year!  Talk about a wine that balances rich and fat with acidity and structure — this one does a marvelous job at that.  Plump, juicy, and opulent, this one breathes of raspberry and blackberry jam along with notions of pepper and exotic spices.  On the palate, it coats every inch of flavor perception.  One word: AWESOME!
