I love Tobin wines and this may not be one of their Reserves or Fat Boy, but for the price it is a quality wine! Read more

I've loved past vintages, but the 2008 is way too sweet. It literally tastes like liquid raisin. Maybe in a few years, this wine will be better... Read more

Like most of Toby's wines, this Ballistic Zinfandel is a rock 'em sock 'em Zinfandel, big, rambunctious, powerful and full of spice and sass. Maybe the ultimate barbeque zin, the wine is packed with ripe, juicy fruit and plenty of richness.

Tobin James is Paso Robles original "rock & roll" winemaker, and anyone who's ever visited his winery's tasting room can attest to the fact that a Tobin James wine is a recipe for an instant party. Like most of Toby's wines, this "Ballistic" Zinfandel is a rock 'em sock 'em Zinfandel, big, rambunctious, powerful and full of spice and sass. Maybe the ultimate barbeque zin, the wine is packed with ripe, juicy fruit and plenty of richness.

Winemaker's Notes:

Beautiful ruby and garnet colors. Big ripe berry nose with hints of pepper. Rich and fruit forward with blackberry, cherry and currant. Hints of herb, spice and pepper. Incredible food wine.
