Winemaker's Notes:

Deep rich spice and plum flavors with hints of herb. Almost port-like, very complex.

Tobin James:
It all started with an extra six tons of grapes that a winery could not accept and process. Tobin (Toby) James, a lowly assistant winemaker at the time, asked the owner of the winery if he could have the grapes and make wine out of them for himself. The owner replied, "sure kid, knock yourself out". A year and a half later, gold medals began pouring in for Toby's first Zinfandel, the 1985 "Blue... Read more
It all started with an extra six tons of grapes that a winery could not accept and process. Tobin (Toby) James, a lowly assistant winemaker at the time, asked the owner of the winery if he could have the grapes and make wine out of them for himself. The owner replied, "sure kid, knock yourself out". A year and a half later, gold medals began pouring in for Toby's first Zinfandel, the 1985 "Blue Moon" Zin. After making his wines at another local winery for a few years, and tasting and selling them out of a local wine shop in town, Toby finally took the plunge and built Tobin James Cellars in 1994. Built from the ground up on the site of an old stagecoach stop, it might seem more natural to stroll into the old-fashioned western-style saloon, place your booted foot on the brass rail of the bar and order a shot of whiskey from the bartender. However, in the Tobin James tasting room, award winning wines are poured from behind the grand, antique 1860's Brunswick mahogany bar from Blue Eye, Missouri. Tobin James Cellars, located 8 miles east of Paso Robles on Highway 46, sits among 71 acres of vineyard's and oak dotted hills. A magnificent setting for magnificent wines! As soon as you approach, you see something unique. The wooden structures, heralded by the rotating blades of a towering water pump, have a character all their own, There is even a restored stage coach stop that is now being used as a guest house that will take your breath away. It seems everything structural is relevant of age and history. Come visit Tobin James Cellars for a truly unique wine tasting experience, or call us for a delivery and find out for yourself why our wines are "Paso Robles in a glass"! You will see why this Paso Robles Winery is a favorite stop for locals and visitors alike. Read less

This Jammy Zin is a great value! I love a jammy, bold Zin and this is perfect. It has a great bold taste with a wonderful finish. I will be getting more!

Always one of the most sought after wines, this wine is made in very limited quantities. Our Late Harvest Zinfandel is magnificent all by itself, or try it with anything chocolate!

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.

Tobin James James Gang Zinfandel is deep, dark, intense, ruby color. Rich fruit berry aroma with spice. Intense raspberry and black cherry with a thick velvety texture. Full and jammy, with hints of spice and pepper on the finish.



Deep rich spice and plum flavors with hints of herb. Almost port-like, very complex.
