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