Very pretty and perfumed on the nose. All sorts of fresh and lightly dried fruit aromas like grapefruit and fig create attractive complexity. There’s also a nice floral top note here and some glassy, nuanced soil tones. This is rich and smooth in the mouth. Plenty of acidity adds its limy mark, but the slightly obviously sweet apple and pineapple fruit absorbs the acidity nicely, allowing it to add a nice mineral fishtail on the back end. The finish is a touch dull with the sugar taking the upper hand most of the way, but that’s a minor detail in an otherwise winning package. 90pts

The 2011 Heritage Vines Zinfandel presents a wonderful profile of blueberry, red currants, and silky structure that speak to the cool 2011 vintage. An additional few minutes in the glass reveal underlying mineral nuances that make this wine really stand out. The moderate alcohol nature of this Zin provides smooth tannin and structure, making the palate very well balanced. The fruit is evident but not overpowering, with layers of black cherry, mixed berries, currants and all spice. This Zinfandel speaks to the old vine DNA of this wine, with earthy mixed berry characters and subtler hints of white and black pepper. The finish lingers on, creating a mouth-watering desire for another sip. - WineryBARREL AGING: 19 months in French, American, and Hungarian oakBLEND:84% Zinfandel16% Petite SirahALCOHOL: 14.5%PH: 3.72TA: 0.61g/100mL

Rancho Zabaco is a name virtually synonymous with Zinfandel, but not just any Zinfandel. Rancho Zabaco is crafted for the Zinfandel enthusiast with distinctive wines from some of the finest vineyards in Sonoma County. That means that Rancho Zabaco Zinfandels are exuberantly robust and full of spice the kind of taste that makes Zin lovers smile and say "Wow!"


Winemaker's Notes:

Flavors of juicy lingonberry, blueberry syrup, elderberry preserves and huckleberry smoothie develop in your mouth you realize that there's more to the flavors than just berries. Named for an historic Mexican land grant, Rancho Zabaco wines are an authentic expression of a special place and time in Sonoma's history.
