Mazzoni Home Ranch was orginally purchased by Giuseppe Mazzoni in 1899 and first planted in 1900. It is primarily Zinfandel but, like most vineyards from that era, has a menagerie of interplanted other stuff including Petite Sirah, Carignane, Golden Chasselas, and a handful of others. The Oltranti family acquired the ranch in the 1988 and expanded and replanted some of the vineyard. While we also made wine from some of vineyard. While we also made wine from some of the newer blocks in 2022 and 2023, this wine exclusively from the oldest block with vines dating back over 100 years.

We treated this fruit with respect that it deserves. Extra time on skins, a gentle press to barrel ans some extended lees contact. It's 100% of the lot and vineyard. We didn't blend anything into it, we wouldn't dare. We gave the fruit the work it needed to fully express the elegance and structure that vines of this age have earned. Drink this summer through 2040ish, with prime windows likely 2025-2029 and after 2034.
