From Sobon Estate, and certainly richer and meatier than the regular Sobon Zins, yet marked by similar characteristics. It's hot in alcohol, overripe in raisiny flavors, and thick and heavy in the mouth, although it's nicely dry.
Just what you want a great mountain Zin to be. Marvelously rich and ripe in berry, cherry, chocolate, coffee and spicy flavors, a wine that just blows you away with fruit, but balanced and even elegant. Fully dry despite the size. Perfect with grilled meat or poultry.
Showcases the powerful ripeness of Sierra mountain Zins in the massive blackberry pie, cherry tart and Kahlanduacute;a flavors that are wrapped in thick, finely ground tannins. This is a beautiful Zin that would score higher except for some excessive sweetness, despite 15.2% of alcohol.
From one of Shenandoah's oldest and shyest-bearing vineyards. Beautiful aromas of blackberry, cocoa, and mulberry highlight the wine. The flavor of ripe plum, berry and chocolate bring out the true old vine character of this fine wine. Serve with ribs, lamb or duck confit.

This lovely wine is a rich example of the Amador Zinfandel style. The aromas are reminiscent of ripe blackberries, cherries, and cocoa. The wine is full-bodied and only moderately tannic. The wine is a perfect match for roasts, steak and rich sauces, and will complement aged, full flavored cheeses.
