  • Sobon Estate Zinfandel Old Vine Estate Amador County 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty and a bit candied on the nose with a hint of spicy and red fruit notes. In the mouth there is more of the same, gentle spice, and candied red fruits that are reinforced by the noticeable RS on the palate. The fruit shows a raspberry jamminess and picks up a dusty note on the modest finish. 84pts Read More

  • Sobon Estate Hillside Zinfandel 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Unremarkable zinfandel from Sobon Estate. Had very harsh tannins when first opened, but rounded out after about an hour or so. Palate is dominated by earthy tones. A little bit of must in the background too. Can't say that I will repeat this purchase. Read More
