A really ripe but refined California Zinfandel. From heritage vines in some of the best spots of Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma, this red has a very big presence of ripe, spicy dark red fruit. But it also real depth, balance and layering that is well above its station. Satisfying but also harmonious, the Zabaco Heritage is a great Zin for the price.

Overview

Grape

93% Zinfandel and 7% Petite Sirah

Its Origins

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.

What The Critics Say

Wine Enthusiast

"Extracted in dark blackberry and leather, there's a soft structure that makes this affordable wine work, leaving room for the peppercorn and dried herb so beloved in the variety."

Antonio Galloni (2011 vintage)

"The 2011 Zinfandel Heritage Vines is a ridiculously delicious wine for the money. Juicy dark cherries, tobacco, menthol and cloves positively burst from the glass. There is no shortage of varietal character in this plush, juicy Zinfandel. At just $15 a bottle, the 2011 is a steal."

Robert Parker (2013 vintage)

"This is a beautiful Zinfandel and the good news is there are over 30,000 cases of it. Coming from three of Gallo’s top Zinfandel vineyards, Stephani, Frei Ranch and Chiotti, most of them in Dry Creek, this blend of 98% Zinfandel and 2% Petite Sirah tips the scales at a lofty 14.8% natural alcohol. The wine has a deep ruby color, and a seductive, peppery, meaty, Côte du Rhône-type nose revealing lavender and roasted herb characteristics. No hard edges are found in this medium to full-bodied, fleshy, nicely concentrated Zinfandel."
