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
This is a stunning, multifaceted wine. It has intriguing aromas of spice, cherry and concentrated fruit: restrained but very complex. The multiple flavors feature a toasty, dusty-cherry component so typical of the Fiddletown area. The finish is long and lingering, and invites another taste. Serve with chicken, lamb, beef or pasta dishes.
Deep and concentrated, showing loads of earth, spice and meaty flavors alongside luscious raspberry and blueberry fruit.
The color is ruby/garnet to the rim with a purple core. The nose is very perfumed with classic brambly spiced cherry and plum fruit with an underlying mineral component from the decomposed granite schist soil. Nuances of sandalwood, dusty rose petal... Andy Frieden. A Zinfandel wine from California in USA. 2007 Sobon Estate Zinfandel Fiddletown 750ml
The boldest, spiciest and most outspoken of the Sobon Zinfandel lineup. Excellent balance; just about exploding with black and red fruit flavors, spicy oak and black pepper. This is the kind of wine that could never feel out of place at a good old-fashioned barbecue, but also works well with steak and mushroom dishes or spicy Chinese beef, or on its own as a pick-me-up on a cold winter night.
Lovely mountain Zin, showing a briary, brambly quality to intensely flavored wild blackberries, blueberries and cherry liqueur. There are also tiers of peppery spices, licorice, chocolate mint and soy. Polished and dry, this fine, complex Zinfandel is drinking well now.
An easygoing little Zinfandel that shows wild berry, white pepper and sage aromas and appealingly zesty flavors. Drink now.
Filled with flavor, from the cherry and peppery nose to the spicy finish. This is an excellent, robust wine with a lot of character. It opens up with some nice ripe berry and cherry on the tongue, and continues with an oaky and spicy kick to your tastebuds. It has high tannin and is an excellent sipper for someone who wants a more hearty wine.
