Big, rich, complex zin from Amador County. Loads of dark fruit, prunes, dried fig, earthy texture, chewy, some smoke, and a fairly long finish.
This has been my go to BBQ zin for some time. Spicy and rich with lots of silky jammy black, briary fruit and black pepper. A true old vine zin for under $15!
External Reviews for Sobon Estate Zinfandel Amador County Cougar Hill
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.
Zinfandel is the one red varietal that I absolutely cannot escape. I try to pick other types, but I usually return to Zin. In this case it is the Sobon Estate Cougar Hill Zin, I loved its deep, sweet fruit aromas of blueberries and loganberries. It is a very well balanced wine, melding flavors of dark berries and cocoa powder with a touch of vanillin oak to smooth out the finish. The immense fruit is balanced by a perfect acidity and subtle tannic backbone. The trend, as of late, is to amp up the alcohol content in California Zins to astronomical levels, some nearing 17%. That is a little extreme for my taste; the Cougar Hill Zin is a little more restrained at 14.2%. The fruit-forward style is great for summer foods, especially smoky barbecue.
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.
Made entirely from organically grown grapes, this stylish wine has very forward berry-like aromas and flavors that are rich and full with a deep lingering finish.

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.
