Tasting Note                         

87    2009  Sobon  Old Vines Zinfandel  (Amador County)   4/7/12 ($13)

  14.9% alc

Overall: Red cherry color with briary spice and musk complementing tart pomegranate, red/black cherry fruit and touches of bitter orange and quinine. A balanced middleweight with very good fruit and acidity. It could use a little more weight and richness, but its tart red fruit and acidity are lively and food friendly. Very good value.
