Rancho Zabaco, one of the original Mexican land grants in Northern Sonoma, crosses over portions of Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley – one of the areas in Sonoma County from which these grapes are sourced. Sonoma Heritage Vines delivers an abundance of black fruit and spice aromas, demonstrating the classic and distinctive characteristics of Zinfandel. The soft, plummy, and jammy flavors and textures make this wine not only approachable, but also versatile, allowing it to be paired with a wide range of foods.


"I actually preferred the bigger production, less expensive 2010 Zinfandel Heritage Vines (40,700 cases), which was made from a blend of 93% Zinfandel and 7% Petite Sirah, largely from the Russian River and Lodi areas, that achieved nearly 15% natural alcohol. It possesses a dark ruby/plum color as well as notes of roasted herbs, underbrush, ground pepper, meaty, briery, black cherry and black currant fruit, and abundant spice. This offering borders on being too rustic and earthy, but excellent ripeness, structure, texture and richness are all present. Drink this absurdly priced beauty over the next 1-3 years.
