Rancho Zabaco wines bear the name of one of Old California’s earliest land grants – the Tzabaco Rancho. In those days, the area was a colorful mixture of missions, haciendas, and ranches. Today it’s an area known as the Dry Creek Valley “Zin Zone.” Our Chiotti Vineyard, actually sits on part of that historic property. Rancho Zabaco® is a name virtually synonymous with Zinfandel, but not just any Zinfandel. Dancing Bull is crafted for the Zinfandel enthusiast with distinctive wines from some of the finest vineyards in Sonoma County. That means that Dancing Bull Zinfandels are exuberantly robust and full of spice – the kind of taste that makes Zin lovers smile and say “Wow!”
The wine is crisp and clean with bright citrus tanginess balanced with a hint of cut grass herbaceousness usually found in New Zealand wine. The nose is packed with aromas of lime and kiwi, with subtle notes of fresh cut grass and boxwood. The mouth has a crisp acidity and focused grapefruit and lime freshness balanced by tropical flavors of guava and mango.
