Easily the best Mazzocco wine I've tasted. Grown at 2400 feet in the netherworld of far-western Dry Creek, this wine has a rich, opulent feel in the mouth without being heavy or sweet. In fact, drinking beautifully already at age 3. Lovely, concentrated, brambly Dry Creek fruit fills the mouth, seamless richness from start to lingering finish. Tasted against an equally outstanding Pezzi King Row 26, this wine did not give an inch. - HK 2017-01-26
