Dancing Bull Sauvignon Blanc

Lovely and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc, with red grapefruit and crisp appley fruit. Winemaker Eric Cinnamon and winery Rancho Zabaco are know for making big and bold wines in Sonoma Valley and Dancing Bull is a great example of Californian production at its best. Rancho Zabaco is named for one of the original Mexican land grants in Northern Sonoma, which crosses over portions of the Russian River Valley, the area from which these grapes are grown. The wines are inspired by the bold spirit and rich heritage of the Spanish and Mexican pioneers who settled this rugged land. Buy this wine if you like: Aromatic white wine with a kick. Green pepper, ripe melon fruit and crisp acidity.
