The 2015 Zinfandel Home Ranch is slightly deeper and richer, with more blueberry fruit, gorgeous underbrush and earth aromas and nuances, lots of spice, and medium to full-bodied richness. Plush, yet seamless and pure, it's another killer Zinfandel from this estate.
93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Zinfandel Home Ranch is medium garnet-purple in color and features quite an earthy nose to begin, with notions of black soil and fungi over a core of blackberry preserves, dried plums, bay leaves and star anise plus a touch of raisin cake. Full-bodied with a wicked backbone of very firm, chewy tannins and lively acid, it has a great core of muscular fruit and a long, spicy finish.

Burly and broad, with expressive blackberry and licorice aromas that open to plump, deeply structured wild berry, clove and pepper flavors that unfurl toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2027.
Blackberry, black plum and other brambly fruit characteristic of Alexander Valley. “Graham crust” undertones typical of the Home Ranch terroir. Subtle hints of oak, briary acidity and a finish of ripe peach.
