Rancho Zabaco Zinfandel "Heritage Vineyards" 2006 wine review by (PB)
This Sonoma Zin has a pretty glistening black cherry hue with rich berry and Zin wildness in the swirl.
Palate: nice texture with a bold presence and big dark berry flavors and a subtle chocolate finish.
This wine is a little chewy (meaning it is just young and needs another year to its prime but is a good example of zinfandel. Rancho Zabaco is producing some quality Zins these days but read the labels carefully as they produce several versions of the grape. (See my review of the 05) and raise a glass.
