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

Zesty fruit compote on the nose, more oaky on the palate versus fruit with perhaps a smoky, molasses finish. Very drinkable but not inspiring.

Unbalanced, too much alcohol. Smokey, Jammy nose with a smoother touch on the palate but almost disappears. Better when consumed with food, rather than stand alone.

A long nose of cherry with a hint of black pepper. It is smooth and well rounded. I will recommend this wine for any Cab enthusiast.

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!"
