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.

External Reviews for Sobon Estate Zinfandel Amador County Rocky Top
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.
Pepper and plum scents meld with this winersquo;s zinny florals. It has a light tannic backbone to support the superripe grape flavors, delicious with grilled fennel sausages over pasta.
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.
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.
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.
A Zinfandel wine from California in USA. 2007 Sobon Estate Zinfandel Rocky Top 750ml
If you ask a Wine Associate at Premier for a recommendation for a good Zin in any price range invariably you will be led straight to the Sobons. While each bottling is a superb example of the Amador County style of Zinfandel my personal favorite is the Rocky Top. Not as spicy or sweet as the Fiddletown not as restrained as the Cougar Hill this wine is bold and rich with densely layered blackberry dark cherry and cacao notes. Blended with small amounts of Petite Sirah Carignan and Barbera to add complexity it pairs beautifully with any roasted or grilled red meat dish.
