Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.9%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Our Zinfandel showcases a soft mouthfeel, which makes this wine both approachable and versatile with plenty of ripe dark fruit flavors of blackberry and black cherry, complemented by bright red fruit flavors of raspberry and strawberry. Spicy notes of black pepper and vanilla add layers which allow the fruit to be the star.
Our Zinfandel pairs well with heavier sauced dishes such as braised pork ribs or pasta with a rich, tomato based sauce.

We had bought a bottle of this previously, and not so long ago, but perhaps it was a different vintage. Or perhaps it was the fact that we drank several bottles (over a period of days, of course!) of a very nice Clos du Val Merlot before drinking a new bottle of this. In any case, if I hadn't paid for the bottle I would have poured it down the sink. Raw, raw, raw. I have liked Rancho Zabaco's various "Dancing Bull" varieties, but will never drink this one again.
