Sobon Estate Zinfandel Amador County 2010

Member Review by Jon of Sonoma:

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.

The wine has aromas of spice, cherry and concentrated fruit. It is restrained and very complex. Enjoy with lamb, beef or pasta dishes.

Lovely mountain Zin, showing a briary, brambly quality to intensely flavored wild blackberries, blueberries and cherry liqueur. There are also tiers of peppery spices, licorice, chocolate mint and soy. Polished and dry, this fine, complex Zinfandel is drinking well now.

A clean, basic red wine that's focused on standard berry and cherry aromas and flavors. Fresh but simple, with limited raspberry and cherry flavors along with a touch of vanilla. Competent but entirely regular.A thoroughly enjoyable Zinfandel that shows the variety'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.

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.

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.

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.
