This is a soft Zin, with aromas of berries and subtle spice. On the palate jammy blackberry and strawberry flavors, nice acidity on a balanced frame, soft tannins. Medium finish ending with fruit notes. Tasting Sample.

The most available, affordable, and overall great OVZ of this region. I drink it often and have found it in distant places when I'm wanting a Amador Zin. I like that. Kudos to the person at Sobon that deals with vendors! A wonderful small winery and a great wine every year!

Great Buy! Nice Zin from Sobon Estate one of my favorite Zin makers in Ca. Nice Cherry aroma on the nose with just the right amount of Oak. Worth a case!!

You can smell the alcohol on this one. Ripe berry nose, with mint, fennel, and licorice. Wow. $15 from Village Corner.
