Winemaker's Notes:

This wine captures the true varietal character and terroir of Monte Rosso Zinfandel. Fresh crushed berry, spice, briar and earthy notes are supported by plush tannins. This pairing of ripe fruit and spicy elegance results in a smooth mouthfeel and a lingering finish. The toasty flavors from the French oak barrels hint of coconut and vanilla and showcase the wine's refined intensity.
My Notes:

About Rancho Zabaco:

Rancho Zabaco is named for one of the original Mexican land grants in Sonoma County. Sonoma County encompasses the Dry Creek Valley, the area from which Rancho Zabaco’s grapes are drawn. The wines are inspired by the bold spirit of the Spanish and Mexican pioneers who settled this rugged land.
