Rancho Zabaco Sauvignon Blanc Russian River Valley Reserve 2007

Member Review by drdebs:

Excellent QPR domestic sauvignon blanc. Aromas of pink grapefruit and canteloupe, echoed on the palate. Some nice herbaceousness, but not grassy. Retains its melon and citrus flavor profile. $12/SRP.

While Rancho Zabaco Winery is a fledgling winery, with only a decade under its belt, the land’s history is rich. Given to a 14-year-old boy in 1843, the 17,000 acre land in northern Sonoma County was originally farmland. Dubbed “Tzabaco Rancho” by its owner, it was the basis for Rancho Zabaco’s name and future success. Founder and winemaker Eric Cinnamon devotes his time to the land, producing only the wines that grow best in the area: Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel. Their land in the Russian River Valley is devoted to Sauvignon Blanc, while Dry Creek Valley, the “Zin Zone,” consistently produces world-class Zinfandel. Read less

Clear, pale green/yellow in color, with a fresh floral nose and hints of green apple, citrus and lavender. This crisp Sauv Blanc booms with a mouthful of tangy lemon. The mouth-feel is smooth, with just enough acid to keep it from feeling too weighty. What it lacks in charm, it makes up for in dense, refreshing citrus. The finish is a bit metallic, but not overly so. A decent sipper, but nothing to get too excited about, and not quite as good as some sub-$20 Sauv Blanc's on the market.
