Sobon Estate Hillside Zinfandel 2010

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

A nice Amador County Zinfandel, the Hillside is a throttled-back version of Sobon’s single-vineyard and old-vine bottlings; fine, ripe flavors of blackberry, blueberry and boysenberry with a hint of cherry and cranberry on the pleasingly tart finish; a good match with a variety of foods.

A super bang for the buck, this is brimming with intense mountain blackberry fruit. It’s soft, with supple tannins and a long, cocoa-laced finish. Stock up on this for your next outdoor barbecue.
