Tobin James Zinfandel Fatboy 2018, Paso Robles, California

“Located eight miles east of Paso Robles on Highway 46, Tobin James Cellars sits among 71 acres of vineyards and oak dotted hills. Built from the ground up on the site of the old ’10-mile Stagecoach Stop,’ our old-fashioned western-style tasting room saloon embraces the rough and rugged frontier history of Paso Robles, California.” The grapes used in this Zinfandel blend are sourced from 50+ year-old vines and from vineyards that have been cloned from some of the most famous Zinfandel vineyards in Paso Robles. Fatboy Zin is full-bodied with a saturated violet purple color. Fruit forward and bold, this wine is for the adventurous person looking for anything but ordinary. Big, bold, jammy, olallieberry pie smacking-you-right-in-the-face wine. Although this wine is mega jam packed it also has a slight spice. Clove and cinnamon flavors tease the palate. This wine is rich, juicy, and packed with flavor.
