This is a stunning, multifaceted wine. It has very intriguing aromas of spice, cherry, and concentrated fruit; restrained, but very complex. The flavors are also very complex with a toasty, dusty-cherry component so typical of the Fiddletown area. The finish is long and lingering, and invites another taste.

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

This is a stunning, multifaceted wine. It has intriguing aromas of spice, cherry and concentrated fruit: restrained but very complex. The multiple flavors feature a toasty, dusty-cherry component so typical of the Fiddletown area. The finish is long and lingering, and invites another taste. Serve with chicken, lamb, beef or pasta dishes.

Wine Tasting NotesThis is a fragrant, rich, full bodied zin with very forward, fruit driven flavors. It is meant for everyday drinking, but will improve with up to five years of bottle age. It is a blend of several of our old zinfandel vineyards.

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.

The boldest, spiciest and most outspoken of the Sobon Zinfandel lineup. Excellent balance; just about exploding with black and red fruit flavors, spicy oak and black pepper. This is the kind of wine that could never feel out of place at a good old-fashioned barbecue, but also works well with steak and mushroom dishes or spicy Chinese beef, or on its own as a pick-me-up on a cold winter night.

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.
