This is a dark zin with an ample amount of fruit. The nose has a bit of over ripe character in addition to the black cherry and raspberry. In the mouth it has a slightly sweet impression but it does not have a lot of complexity. I'm a bit surprised to see the Calif appellation VS the Amador one. My rating--- 88

Full bodied, bold and powerful fruity wine.14.5% alc level, so I thought it was a little light on the fruity body to hold up to the alc%. I enjoyed it though for the price. Great zin.

This wine is bright, fresh, hedonistic, and YUMMY. The nose has loads of red fruit and berry flavors with a healthy dose of vanilla. It is the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup of Zinfandels. For this variety it does not deliver tannically, but is nevertheless smooth and well-balanced on the palate.

Maybe this deserves a four. This wine is a blend of Zin, Cab Sauv, Barbera, Syrah, Petite Syrah. Quality oak flavors and smooth, almost invisible tannins are surrounded by flavors from at least three or four fruits ranging from Raspberry and Cherry to cranberry. The jam-flavors are accented by a gentle peppery slap that reminds you that California blends can have some truly good flavors. This wine is a great value - each sip better than the one before.

Natural winemaking is the vintnerrsquo;s goal, with special care given to every barrel and every bottle. This fruit-driven Zinfandel is deep purple in color. Ripe blackberries, blueberries and black cherries are prominent on the palate. Medium bodied, the wine has structure and mellow tannins. Serve with grilled blue cheese and bacon burgers.

A super bang for the buck, this is brimming with intense mountain blackberry fruit. Itandrsquo;s soft, with supple tannins and a long, cocoa-laced finish. Stock up on this for your next outdoor barbecue.

A nice Amador County Zinfandel the Hillside is a throttled-back version of Sobon’s single-vineyard and old-vine bottlings; fine ripe flavors of blackberry blueberry and boysenberry with a hint of cherry and cranberry on the pleasingly tart finish; a good match with a variety of foods.

A rich example of Amador Zinfandel style, this wine is a perfect match for rich sauces, roasts, steak and aged, full-flavored cheese.

"Old vine" 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 don't find in Zinfandel.
