Rancho Zabaco Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Reserve 2010
Our Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel is big and chewy with concentrated, explosive blackberry and cherry fruit flavors. The addition of Petite Sirah contributes black pepper spice. The mouthfeel is long and rich; with soft supple tannins matched with the sweet vanilla toast from the barrels.
Dusty, chalky nose of briar berry fruit, some plum and a wonderful core of spice, especially dried sage. Red berry fruit profile. On the palate, blackberry and red bramble fruit with nice oak spice, some light florals, and a lovely spice profile that is in the perfect amount. Not overbearing, not to weak. Everything is here in balance as well as acid, alcohol and fruit. Very enjoyable.
Lots of acid and not enough fruit. Dry and chalky. There are better zin's around for cheaper.
