Great Zin for the money.
Strong, Fruity, BOLD, and sweet full-bodied Zin. Delicious and powerful.
Rich berry color, medium-bodied, jammy fruit taste
BIg wine - quite peppery. Really liked this. (Third and last bottle at Erin and Doug's. It followed The Prisoner...)
Smoky, coffee aroma. Wonderful!
External Reviews for Sobon Estate Old Vines Amador County Zinfandel
Offers jammy boysenberry and blackberry fruit, with notes of briary licorice and spice. Drink now.
Full-bodied and plush with crushed black cherry and roasted blueberry fruit. A perennial favorite!
Tastes fresh and jammy and slightly gassy, like a new Beaujolais, although it should calm down and settle by mid-2009. Then it will be a fine, fruity Zin, fruit-forward and dry in blackberries, cherries, raspberries, raisins, mocha and pepper.
Aromas of plum and white pepper lead to sweet-and-sour cherry, spice and toasty caramel flavors.
From one of the most consistent producers of Zin in all of Califonia, Sobon Estate comes through with another one. Sweet wild berries on the nose turn into ripe raspberries and cassis on the palate. The tannins are supple and the the wine finishes with some great spice and fruit.
Gets the job done with simple, Zinny flavors of wild berries, tobacco, spices and herbs, wrapped in firm tannins. A bit sharp on the finish, but fine as an inexpensive everyday red.
Intense and a bit untamed, showing wild berry and loamy red clay aromas, with juicy, rustic blackberry and roasted sage flavors. Drink now through 2011.
