Editorial Reviews for Easton Zinfandel Amador County
Nice and precise on the nose, with slightly herbal, chaparral brush and edgy, wild berry fruit aromas. In the mouth there are lovely herbal shadings to the core of dark cherry fruit. This is smooth and supple, with nice soft tannins and integrated acidity, and while it does turn just a little jammy on the finish, it’s a very happy wine. 90 points
A well balanced wine. Has a big nose of blackberry and sweet candy, and hints of spice. More spicy ripe fruit on the palate, dominantly tastes of blackberry but also has notes of dried fruit/rasins/fig - all well balanced by acid. Definitely has distinct vanilla notes; presumably from the oak. Good acid and some ripe tannin.
