Shenandoah Vineyards

Shenandoah Vineyards and Sobon Estate are family-owned wineries with a 32-year reputation for producing the best possible wines using low-yield viticulture and minimum intervention wine making techniques. Sobon Family Wines emphasize high fruit and low tannins, and are made with our own sustainably-grown grapes. They reflect the unique Shenandoah Valley terroir, resulting in a richness and intensity rarely seen elsewhere. Award-winning Sobon wines are distributed nationally. Both wineries are open daily for wine tasting in the picturesque Amador County near Plymouth, CA.

  • Shenandoah Vineyards Zinfandel Special Reserve 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This 2011 is very ripe without being hot or over ripe. Nice fruit with soft tannins. Obviously late harvested at 14.5% Alc. Cocoa dominates but there is also black fruit. Has tartrate crystals, a good thing. Nice rich garnet color but not inky. My rating-- 91 UPDATE- There are bottles of this wine that are nothing like what I have described ab... Read More

  • Zinfandel, it’s no secret that I’ve carried on a long and intimate relationship with you. There is so much you have to offer. Sometimes you're a bit rough and tumble, edgy, even dangerous, while other times you’re coy or playful. But you’re always there for me, with joyous fruit, classic bramble notes and structure, allowing for early consumptio... Read More

  • Shenandoah Vineyards Zinfandel Special Reserve 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Wonderful nose of ripe berry (not jammy, but ripe) with some pepper. Flavors of red berry, with some tartness and pepper. Decent acidity with noticeable tannin, though not chewy. The fruit is on the lighter side, without detracting from the flavors. Slightly imbalanced with the tartness, but the fruit is tasty. Read More
