For the second year in a row, one of our wines has been named to Sonoma Magazine’s 100 Best Wines of Sonoma!
The publication selected our 2013 Malbec as one of the county’s best – an incredible honor, especially when you consider the sheer number of amazing wines coming out of Sonoma today. We’re thrilled to be included among so many distinguished wineries; congratulations to all!
Bottled in July of 2015 and released earlier this year, our 2013 Malbec has received a number of accolades, including:
BEST OF CLASS & DOUBLE GOLD
2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
95 POINTS & GOLD MEDAL
2016 Press Democrat North Coast Wine Challenge
2015 Grand Harvest Awards
Wine writer and reviewer, Linda Murphy, had this to say about the wine:
Estate 1856 Wines
2013 Tzabaco Rancho Vineyards Dry Creek Valley Malbec
Brian and Janice Schmidt (she’s the winemaker) won gold and achieved 95 points at the NCWC with this brawny, dense wine with blackberry, blueberry and mulberry flavors accented by chocolate, vanilla and baking spice.
The tannins are quite firm, suggesting a year or more of bottle age will reward the patient. (LM)
