K&L Notes

From one of the few remaining blocks of pre-prohibition era Zinfandel on the Estate, this ridge top vineyard of cobbly loam gives a full-bodied wine of great depth, structure and character. From dry farmed sustainably grown vines, the "Rocky Top" offers notes of summer berries, licorice and a woodsy earthiness with hints of white pepper and allspice. Heady aromatics lead to a rich, long, lingering finish. This wine is best served with spicy slow cooked BBQ, grilled meats and sausage or pepperoni pizza.

    The Sobon Estate Rocky Top just may be the most consistent K&L staff favorite Zinfandel every release. This all estate, single vineyard wine has an incredible nose of dark cherry, blackberry, and baking spices. Blue fruits shine on the palate, alongside beautiful oak spices. This is clean and focused zinfandel that is perfect with any red meats on any day of the week!

    I have always enjoyed the Rocky Top Zinfandel and this vintage is no exception. A rich and structured wine with ample amounts of rich blackberry and cherry fruit. Hints of spices, menthol and earthiness offer complexity and help round out the wine.

    The Sobon Estate label was established in 1989 with the purchase of the D'Agostini winery which is one of the oldest in California and has been designated as a California State Historic Landmark. The old vine Zinfandel was kept on the property and is used in this Rocky Top Zin. Aromatic and full-bodied, this wine is loaded with blackberries, earthiness and peppery notes that would make a fabulous bbq wine!
