Sobon Estates farms sustainably; few chemicals and sulphites are used; aged in barrel for nine months.�

In 1989 the Sobon Family bought these old Sierra Foothills vineyards that were planted in the early 1900s and located at high elevation (many of them around 2000ft above sea-level), yielding some of the best Zinfandel, Carignane and Petite Sirah in California. The �Rocky Top� vineyard was planted in 1926 and produces a full-bodied, rich and spicy Zinfandel that (thanks to that high elevation) retains the freshness and acidity to give it perfect balance. It is blended with a little Carignane (8%) and Petit Sirah (6%), and bottled after 18 months in a mix of French and American oak (30% of it new). Their entry level Zinfandel is under their Shenendoah Vineyards label and is aged in neutral barrels for 9 months before release. It is medium-bodied, bright and fresh with vibrant red fruit character.
