Easton Zinfandel Amador County 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

2007 Easton Zinfandel Amador County - From the makers of lauded Rhne varietal wines, Terre Rouge, in Amador County's Shenandoah Valley comes this delicious zin. Made from grapes grown in decomposed granite soil, the wine is full of black cherry and blackberry fruit aromas and a touch of spice. It is big and juicy with creamy texture from 10 months in French oak. Drinkable now, this will continue to gain complexity with age. This is a California Wine.

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

Spicy, sour cherry jam comes to mind as I hold the glass to my nose. It is brambly, ripe and juicy, and just a hint smoky. Acidity, tannins, and alcohol are all in balance. This Zinfandel has a big, lasting mouthfeel. Perfect to serve all alone or, as is often recommended, with barbeque or grilled meats. Either way it is a good value wine that sure to please.
