Domaine de la Terre Rouge

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 Read more »

Domaine de la Terre Rouge on Snooth

  • Easton Zinfandel Amador County 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A bit of oak greets the nose along with peachy freshness of fruit and layered aromas of smoky, oily blackberry fruit. Fairly rich and peppery, in the mouth, this is laden with bitter black cherry and blackberry fruit, supported by chewy little tannins and good finishing acids. A bit grapey and a touch rustic. 87pts Read More

  • Easton Zinfandel California Shenandoah Valley Estate Bottled 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly oaky on the nose with lots of coffee accents to the black and plummy nose. Bright firm and well defined in the mouth, with bright acids supporting tart red berry fruit, framed by lovely peppery and almost gin like accents. Focused in the mouth with gorgeous fruit, fine edgy tannins and floral finish. 91pts Read More

  • Easton Zinfandel Old Vine Rinaldi Vineyard Fiddletown 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Dark in color and on the nose with old wood, earthy, dried flowers aromas wed to a core of very masculine, oily and dark fruit. Packed and smooth in the mouth with intensely briary, spicy and rich black cherry fruit and boysenberry flavors. This is a rich and complex wine with abundant ripe tannins, bright, juicy acids, and a long intense finish... Read More

  • Hello,I have enjoyed wine for many years casually, but I now want to take it up a notch with and improve my palette and knowledge of wine. I enjoy wine tasting in the Sacramento region of California and prefer red wines, but whites are good too in the summer. Unfortunately I don't have very many friends who share my enthusiasm with wine, but I h...

  • I'll be in Charlotte, NC on business the week of February 24th, and was hoping some locals might be able to help out with a few questions, and maybe get together to open a bottle or two. Any help would be appreciated, and it would be great to meet Snoothers from that neighborhood. -Bob1) Are there any BYOB restaurants in Charlotte?2) If so, what... Read More
