Rancho Zabaco Winery:
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.

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

excellent wine for the price. Great value and bold. lasting on the palete. Cherry, raspberry, black berries, sugar cane. drink about 65-70 degrees. 15% alcohol shows good depth.

This wind made me smile. Full and rich, dark sweet cherries and chocolate? Enjoyed it on its own.

My wife and I really enjoyed this wine. We're new to the whole wine thing, but we'll get this one again. Rich, peppery, good fruit.

"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." -Winery


Vintage: 2008 11/12/2010

Rating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. This uneven wine sends mixed and very conflicting messages of green berries and ripeness at too many points with scattered suggestions of dried plums and burnt brownies showing up here and there. It is fat upon entry and fairly taut at the end, and it ends with acid and heat its two major traits.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
