Winemaker's Notes:

Our Rancho Zabaco Sauvignon Blanc exhibits intense aromas and flavors of lime peel, cut grass, and gooseberry with notes of ripe peach and tropical fruit. With a touch of minerality, the mouthfeel is both crisp and refined and has an exceptionally lengthy finish. The wine is elegant and expressive, showing the many great varietal characters of a cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc.

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.
