Sobon Estate Amador County Roussanne 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Great nose, lots of boiled chestnuts and toasted chestnut shells, intense with a noticeable yet integrated oak backdrop. Lilacs, white pepper and very light mangosteen fruit. Decidedly soft in the mouth with a rich, viscous feel and initial honied fruit note that yields to an almost strawberry tinged mid-palate with rich orange tones and a touch of butter cream. The finish returns to a more citrussy vein with a nicely floral inner mouth perfume of almost tropical orange blossoms. Big rich balanced and different this is a winner 90pts

This wine was a bit disappointing, given the price. It has nice deep straw color, honey and floral nose that do not translate well in the mouth. It has a short finish and is in dire need of some acid. It is over ripe and flabby. I've been going to this winery for 30 years and I find this wine to be a shadow of what they have produced in the past.

Fascinating nose thats woody, oaky and almost earthy. Very intriguing. The wine has a real creamy character with butter and soft spice from the oak coming through. There are flavors of coconuts and dill with a light citrus flavor on the finish. Very nice, and held up for 4 days after opening in the fridge
