Food Pairings for Sobon Estate Zinfandel Fiddletown
Editorial Reviews for Sobon Estate Zinfandel Fiddletown
A touch of fudge and moist earth with lovely brambly notes of sapwood, herb and wild black raspberry fruit edged with a touch of pipe tobacco. Pure black raspberry fruit on entry, very good acids, lots of sweet fruit here, nice top notes of briar and bramble. Nice purity of well-expressed yet uncomplicated fruit. A wine for drinking, not for thinking about. Finishes with a slightly jammier tone and more wood spice but still nicely balanced and fresh 87pts
Balance of this wine is clearly toward the fruit with rich almost sweet berry flavors. Fruit seems more mixed into rather than integrated with the other elements. Strong nose with spices and hints of vanilla. Warm finish. Medium acid, medium tannin, medium body. For the price might be good for parties but needs some work integrating the fruit, perhaps decanting could help.
Very dry and richly tannic. Dense and layered blackberry, blueberry and currant with some leather and bitter dark chocolate. It's lacking some of the spice and jam notes I like in zinfandel, but it's a nice wine.
Not as good as the 2006 $15 and more than worth it!) but really for $13 it is ok for everyday - a bit on the fruity side - aging will help for a year or two at least but will not last that much longer I would imagine -
This is very near what I really like out of a Zin. Lots of fruit, not overly sweet, and kick, kick you butttom. Really digging Amador Co wine, can't wait to do a tasting tour there.
Sobon is a big favorite of Total Wine Stores. I tried 4 the Zins (they bottle way too many zins to be reliable), and would never buy it again. All were "poor", even for the low price.

External Reviews for Sobon Estate Zinfandel Fiddletown
The vineyards are unirrigated and organically farmed, producing small bunches and small berries; yielding a mellow, very enjoyable wine with intense aroma and flavors.
A lush, seductively sexy wine, blessed with ripe, full, fleshy fruit that is smooth as silk and lays on the palate like a Madonna draped satin.
A big, stylish, full-bodied Zinfandel lives in this bottle. Pushy black cherry, blackberry and raspberry parade across spicy vanilla and licorice. Mouth-filling fruit and the perfect amount of spice make this wine a four seasons sipper. Enjoy with black angus hamburgers, grilled meats and picnic favorites.
A fruit-forward style, boasting rich, black fruit and plenty of spicy notes from aging in French and American oak. Finishes with a kiss of minty tannins. The perfect accompaniment to your next barbecue, and sure to please even the most finicky of palates with its huge fruit and easy-drinking style.
Leon Sobon in an Amador pioneer whose Zinfandels are dependably juicy and showcase a Foothills exuberance. This polished bottling is ripe in jammy cherry and blackberry flavors and a Kahlúa finish. It's delicious and easy to drink.
The wine has aromas of spice, cherry and concentrated fruit. It is restrained and very complex. Enjoy with lamb, beef or pasta dishes.
Shows why this part of the Foothills has achieved such a stellar reputation for Zin. It's a big wine, packed with sweet cherry, black raspberry, pepper and smoky vanilla flavors, but drinks balanced and gentle.
Wine Tasting Notes This is a fragrant, rich, full bodied zin with very forward, fruit driven flavors. It is meant for everyday drinking, but will improve with up to five years of bottle age. It is a blend of several of our old zinfandel vineyards.
