With a range of redwood hills between the Dry Creek and the sea, the Dry Creek Valley offers winegrowers the best of both worlds: warm days and cool nights. Recognized as the ultimate â€œsweet spotâ€� for Zinfandel, the Dry Creek Valley is the original home of Rancho Zabaco. Silt, gravel and loam characterize the soils along the valley floor, while the ample benchlands on the east side of the creek offer rockier, less fertile soils that make the vines work harder for a foothold and a sip of water. This creates a greater depth of fruit flavors and complexity in the grapes, giving our wines phenomenal structure and balance.
An intensely robust wine with dense flavors of black and blue fruit of dark cherry, ripe plum, and cassis. More notes.
