External Reviews for Rancho Zabaco Zinfandel California Dancing Bull
This plush zin is chock full of jammy blueberry flavor, with little tannic restraint. Serve it cellar temperature with barbecue.
The wine is immediately approachable with lively raspberry and black pepper fruit. Dancing Bull Zinfandel has hints of black pepper and soft, supple tannins. An extremely versatile wine that pairs well with marinara sauce, grilled chicken or barbecued beef. With its bright, vibrant fruit flavors and zesty personality, this wine can go with just about any dish.
The least expensive, the 2000 Zinfandel Dancing Bull may be the best Zinfandel buy in the marketplace. Its healthy dark plum/ruby color is accompanied by jammy black cherry fruit, medium body, excellent purity, and a lusty, heady finish. It represents everything a Zinfandel should be. Drink this fruit-driven, nicely-sized 2000 over the next 1-2 years.

Not a heavy hoof landed in the Dancing Bull mdash; all finese and sweet, satiny fruit. Kirsch, red raspberrry flavors swirl the palate while enticing strawberry on the nose completes this ballerinarsquo;s pirouette.
This Zinfandel is jammy and rather generic, but still appealing for its toasty cherry and sassafras notes. Drink now through 2015.
As for the red wines, the 2008 Zinfandel is better than many Zinfandels costing 2ndash;3 times the price. Composed of 88% Zinfandel and the rest Petite Sirah and a tiny dollop of Tempranillo, it possesses a dark ruby hue along with plenty of wild berry fruit, herb, pepper and spice characteristics, soft tannins, enough acidity to provide zestiness, and fine balance. It should drink nicely for 1ndash;2 years.
