| 2001 Rancho Zabaco Zinfandel Dancing Bull|
WB Rating: 85
Alcohol by volume: 13.9%
Price at time of purchase: $7.99 (Cost Plus)
Principal varietal(s): Zinfandel
Excellent berry fruit with vanilla nuances, good fruit/acid balance and finish. Some nice black-peppery notes as well. Outstanding buy even though it may not measure up to the big (i.e. expensive) boys in terms of its length of complexity. In our opinion, the 2001 Dancing Bull isn't quite as good as the 2000, which we rated "astonishingly good for the price." On the other hand, we're being spoiled by the terrific quality that Rancho Zabaco is capable of turning out at remarkably low prices. - WB team 2003-03-25
