Sobon Estate Zinfandel Amador County Cougar Hill 2006

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

A plush textured wine, it shows intriguing hints of bacon, vanilla and caramel, in addition to the primary plum, black cherry, cola and herbs notes. Tea and smoke bring up the rear.

Just this side of dry, this is a round, soft, polished Zin, rich in cherry, cassis, coffee and milk chocolate flavors, with a pleasantly spicy, peppery finish. It's a lush wine with a small percent of Syrah.

This is a big, gold-country red with substantial mineral tannins that feel polished, like iron buffed to a black sheen. The fruit gentles those tannins, adding a complex range of flavors from red-apple skin and cherries to blackberries and prunes. Decant it for meaty lasagna or pasta with a hefty ragu.

Appreciate this wine for what it is: magnificently distinct, a wine that stands on its own. Dry and earthy, not too alcoholic, it's quintessential Sierra Zin. It's almost your patriotic duty pt respect it.

A very stylish and likable wine with very forward aromas. The flavors are rich and full with a deep and lingering finish. Made entirely from organically grown grapes.

Forward and easy in cherry, currant, raspberry, tangerine zest, cola and peppery spice flavors, this Zin has a gentle texture. Thereandrsquo;s also a wealth of firm, dusty tannins that could help the wine age for a few years.
