The deep ruby-colored 1999 Zinfandel Fiddletown exhibits a sweet bouquet of jammy black cherries, pepper, and salty sea breezes. It possesses abundant glycerin, excellent concentration as well as purity, and a slightly late harvest, robust, straightforward style. Consume it over the next 4ndash;5 years.

ldquo;Old vinerdquo; in California usually means the vines are thirty or forty years old. The vines from this vineyard are about to have their hundredth birthday. This, combined with the 1900 foot elevation of the Sierra Foothills, gives this wine amazing depth and character. A big, full-bodied wine with notes of fresh blackberry, cherry and a hint of loganberry. The finish is smooth and round, with complexity that you usually donrsquo;t find in Zinfandel.

A thoroughly enjoyable Zinfandel that shows the varietyrsquo;s lusty character, but with special grace and finesse. Bone dry and richly tannic, it has complex flavors of blackberries, blueberries and currants, with earthier notes of tobacco, leather and unsweetened dark chocolate. Very fine.

Grown at the Lubenko Vineyard from head-pruned vines planted in 1910, this is an intensely concentrated, bowl-you-over zin that manages to stay in balance. Therersquo;s an iron-rich soil character that keeps it savory against purple fruit, which will need time in bottle to grow more expressive. Scents of dark mushrooms, chili spice and leather all add to the complexity. Decant this several hours before dinner if you open it now, to serve with braised lamb.

A ripe, rustic Zin, the Fiddletown being one of Sobonrsquo;s better bottlings every year, grown high in elevation. Its serious tannins are balanced by burgeoning blackberry and blueberry fruit interweaved with all the tobacco and leather one has come to expect from this neck of the woods.

High-toned spices, cinnamon and a reddened thyme show the wood influence that carries through this big, burly Zin. Itrsquo;s a sweet, almost Porty red, balanced by tannin gripping in the heat of the finish, by flavors of blueberries in syrup set against dried scents of woodland scrub. An intriguing Foothills style to serve with braised short ribs.

Deep and concentrated, showing loads of earth, spice and meaty flavors alongside luscious raspberry and blueberry fruit.

Winemaker's Notes:

This lovely wine is a rich example of the Amador Zinfandel style. The aromas are reminiscent of ripe blackberries, cherries, and cocoa. Made entirely from their own certified organically grown grapes, this wine is a perfect match for roasts, steak, and rich sauces, and will complement aged, full flavored cheeses.
