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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
