Sobon Estate 2008 Syrah (Amador County)

Sobon's Syrah is from one of the winery's oldest plantings, one that is organically farmed and lightly cropped. The resulting wine, which includes small percentages of Zinfandel (6%), the winery's specialty, as well as Petite Sirah (2%) and Grenache (2%), is more on the savory meat and cooked plums end of the Syrah spectrum, with a silky texture. The wine falls a tad flat on the finish. Virginie Boone
