Easton Cabernet Sauvignon Shenandoah Valley 1999

Member Review by SkyeRean:

This was a lovely smooth wine after being allowed to breathe and worth every penny. A great find at the winery and one of my favorites to have with dinner. If you have the opportunity to go visit the winery you will not be disappointed. I had a hard time choosing which I liked most from here and left with half a case after having visited 6 different wineries in the region and purchasing only one, or none, from the others.

TERRE ROUGE and EASTON Wines is located in California on the West Slope of the Sierra Nevada in Amador County's Shenandoah Valley. Our wines are made from vineyards in four Sierra Foothill counties: Placer, El Dorado, Amador, and Calaveras. We also source fruit from one vineyard site in the soon-to-be new Clements appellation. The style of our wines emphasizes deep color, balanced flavors, full middle palate, and a long finish, with power and finesse. They gain complexity with age. Our goal has been to make the finest wines possible from our region - wines that transcend time and place and can be placed on the table with the best wines of the world. They are meant to be enjoyed with good food and friends. Our winery and vineyards are at the biotic transition zone between the Foothill Oak Belt as characterized by the Sierra Foothill Woodland on the Terre Rouge label, and the Yellow Pine Belt as characterized by the Ponderosa Pine on the Easton label. We farm our vineyards sustainably and our winery derives most of its electrical power from solar panels located the roof of the main winery building. On the next few pages, we share our wines with you. We make over twenty different wines, many of which are very small production (under 600 cases). Each is unique and site-specific with a sense of place (terroir) all of their own. Visit us in California's Shenandoah Valley or just visit us on line. If you get lost on the trail or just want to speak to a person, give us a call. We'd love to hear from you. Read less

a little metalic tasting on the front end... awsome licorice finish. Overall very smooth - but still a bit of an alcohal bite out the nose. Eqivolent with a good 18$ bottle of wine.... certainly not a $30+ bottle.
