Sobon Estate Zinfandel Amador County Rocky Top 2010
Musky nose but, then, some irritating alcohol scent pops up. It's OK in the mouth, though. Very jammy, mouth-filling berry flavors. Nice relaxing finish. Had it with pasta and red sauce, last night. US$13.99.Add winemaker's notes

Sweet, spicy, and zesty. A good red for summer weather.

Dark black cherry color; red raspberry and sweet chalky plum skins on the midpalate. Finishes long with strawberry, cocoa and vanilla. 100% organically grown grapes.
Produced from 100% organically grown grapes; a complex, serious zinfandel (not a fruit clown) in a youthrsquo;s frame. Dark black cherry in the glass, red raspberry and sweet, chalky, plum skins on the midpalate. Finishes long with strawberry, cocoa, vanilla and cinnamon-dusted tannins.
A very distinctive Zin that has that purity of flavor and individuality that tells you it comes from a particular of earth. Itrsquo;s dry and earthy-rich, with finely ground tannins reminiscent of espresso.
The 1997 Zinfandel Rocky Top reveals copious quantities of wild berry fruit, spice, pepper and oak. Generous in the mouth, with medium to full body, pure fruit and a nicely layered texture and moderate finish, this heady Zinfandel should be drunk over the next 2ndash;3 years.
Somewhat plush in the nose, with smoky, rich black cherry, chocolate, coffee, spice and herb notes on the palate. Tannins are big and powdery, keeping the toasty finish in check.
Revealing more black fruits along with earth and spice notes, the medium-bodied 2001 Zinfandel Rocky Top posesses additional depth, and cuts an attractive swath across the palate. Consume it over the next 2ndash;3 years.
This is an outstanding Zinfandel of immense proportions. Floral aromas of vanilla and raspberry jam are very forward and inviting. The flavors match the aromas, with a rich juicy component. The finish is long and velvety rich. Serve with chicken, lamb, beef or pasta dishes.
