Winemaker Notes

Rancho Zabaco 2008 Monte Rosso Vineyard Zinfandel is a flavorful expression of the unique terroir of this vineyard, which is located in the heart of the Sonoma Valley. Flavors of crushed berry, white pepper and nutmeg are matched with a ripe, structured mouthfeel. Monte Rosso's old Zinfandel vines, some more than 125 years old, make this wine a great pairing to a variety of foods and truly age-worthy, with its blend of rich tannins and natural acidity.

Blend: 99% Zinfandel, 1% Petite Sirah

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

From one of the iconic and grand cru vineyards of California, the 2008 Zinfandel Monte Rosso (99% Zinfandel and 1% Petite Sirah) was aged in 100% new oak (mostly American). It boasts an opaque purple color as well as notes of new saddle leather, jammy blackberries, black cherries and strawberries, and copious spice box, cedar and herbs. A dazzling texture, full-bodied opulence and a long finish...

A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine. With no defining regional characteristics, it can be a bit confusing to the general consumer to parse through its many subzones, but the patient wine lover will find many treasures to be discovered here, typically at wallet-friendly prices. Red and white wines are produced here, with more emphasis on the latter, as well as the ultra-popular sparkling wine Prosecco. The region is sheltered from harsh northern European winters by the Alps, which form its northern border, but the climate is still relatively cool, making the Veneto ideal for white wine production.

Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where it can range from neutral and inoffensive to crisp and refreshing. Soave, made primarily from the Garganega grape, has a reputation for producing relatively ordinary, bulk wines, but can be very elegant when yields are carefully monitored, with aromas of lemon, almond, and white flowers. Valpolicella is the region’s best-known red wine, with juicy, tart red cherry flavors derived from the Corvina grape. Recioto and Amarone wines made from dried grapes are a regional specialty and can be very intense, heady, and cerebral.
