Sobon Estate Zinfandel Amador County 2006

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.

Starts with a nice aroma but has not taste and the alcohol level is too high to pair with good food. Pass on this wine.

Organically grown wine. Spicy and cherry. Smoother than their other zins. Nice finish.

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.

As usual, the Sobon Fiddletown is a stunning and multifaceted wine. It has intriguing aromas of spice and cherry, and also a breathtaking menthol quality about it. Rich and restrained, but very complex. Bravo!

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.

Superripe, almost overripe, to judge from the Porty, raisiny, carmelized aroma. Exceptionally full-bodied and long on fruity flavor, and bone dry Blackberries, cassis, plums, chocolate, coffee, it all just floods in the mouth, accompanied by rich tannins. A classic example of a late-harvest type mountain Zin.

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.
