On the nose, there was blueberry jam, blackberry, and black cherry aromas, followed by a lot of cedar, smoke, earth, and vanilla. In the mouth, there was IHOP syrup (although without the viscosity), blueberries, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla. The wine had low tannins, and high acidity and alcohol.

Bought this wine as the local winestore recommended it from it's Zinfandel's. I tasted the wine with some italian pasta. The wine is fruity and pleasingly smooth, but it lacks the structure I was hoping for.

    I rate it 87. Strong fruit, full body, nice nose, hint of sweet. Very satisfied for $8.99

    Simple Zin that is less like a Zin than a Syrah without much stuffing. Black cherry aromas. Cherry flavors with a raspberry jam finish. Will try again tomorrow and see if it's gained some weight.

    An awesome summer barbecue wine. Drank it with a piece of steak, and rice. Good level of spice, pepper and flavor. Great value

    SILVER MEDAL, 2009 CALIFORNIA STATE FAIR WINE COMP. A fine effort, the sophisticated '07 Dancing Bull Zinfandel skates nicely on the palate with uncommon smoothness; easy in the aftertaste.

    As for the red wines, the 2008 Zinfandel is better than many Zinfandels costing 2-3 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 1-2 years.

    Juicy and chockfull of fruity flavor, this is a nice, inexpensive Zin for ribs, chicken, even a steak. Berries, cherries, cola, coffee, chocolate and spices all mingle into a richly tannic finish. The wine is fully dry and moderate in alcohol.

    This is an impressive winery in Healdsburg owned by Gallo. Moreover, the pricing of the wines remains realistic. Zinfandel is Rancho Zabaco Dancing Bull's main emphasis, and they make 60,000 cases of the Sonoma County Zinfandel, a delicious realistically priced Zinfandel in 2004 that shows excellent berry fruit, plenty of pepper and spice, and a heady finish. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

    Big, bold and spicy with generous berry flavors and hints of clove and earth.

    Nearly as good as the '01 and '02, and in the same vein, a dry, balanced Zin that combines an elegant structure with sour cherry, herb and coffee flavors. Notable for its restraint, in an era when it's all too easy to let Zinfandel ripen to excess.

    Pleasant herb and berry flavors finish with an earthy edge. Drink now through 2007.
