Rancho Zabaco Sonoma Heritage Vines Zinfandel 2007 wine review by (PB)
Purple with some depth and a deep bouquet of dark, blackberry and plum, Tight but nice--needs air.
Palate Heavy, a bit hot and very tightly wound. With time it opens a bit to a fruity, dark wild blackberry with some character and robust flavors. I paid $14 for this on sale and it is a decent example of Zinfandel but it's not the value of past Rancho Zabaco Zins.
Raise a glass to America's own grape!
Note--label pictured is close but not exact...
