Easton Zinfandel Amador County 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Eastons basic Zin offers plenty of delicious pleasure. Its a dry, smoothly tannic wine, packed with wild blackberry, mulberry, mocha and (believe it or not) ollallieberry flavors, which perhaps suggests a certain rural, old-fashioned quality. The wine is also superspicy in white pepper and nutmeg. Great value. S.H. (5/1/2008)Cheese Pairing: Blue, Feta, StiltonFood Pairing: Grilled Cheeseburgers, Spaghetti with spiced sausage

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

This was the winner of the night. A big, dark wine with great spiciness and jammy notes. Overall a very enjoyable bottle of wine.

Wine Tasting NotesFull black cherry and blackberry fruit aromas with a beautiful balance and a big, sumptuous, and juicy mouthfeel. It also presents complex spicy aromas,with a nice creamy texture derived from the 10 months time it receives in French oak barrels.
