Notes from the Winemaker:
This is the nineteenth release of our popularly-priced Amador County Zinfandel. It is made from grapes that grow on our beautiful, rolling mountain sites that have the classic, vermilion-colored, Amador decomposed granite soil. The 2015 has full black cherry and blackberry fruit aromas with a beautiful balance and a big, sumptuous, and juicy mouth feel. It also presents complex spicy aromas, with a nice creamy texture derived from the 10 months time it receives in, only, French oak barrels. This wine has become our popular, but serious cru Beaujolais-styled/Rioja crianza-styled Zinfandel that has found its way on to many great restaurant lists across North America where it is often listed “by the glass ”. It is consistently rated one of the top Zinfandels in its class and one of the best value Zinfandels available. Although drinkable now, it gains complex-ity with bottle age. This wine’s release has become highly anticipated by many of our customers each year. We think this 2015 bottling follows in the tradition of our previous versions. Our Zin-fandel’s in 2015 have great bright fruit, richness, balance, and charm. This wine is a great intro-duction to our EASTON line of five distinctly different Zinfandels:

4.5% alc. by volume; 3.58 pH; 6.2 grams per liter total acidity

"Epitomizes fine Sierra Foothills Zinfandel, offering vibrant, briary raspberry, smoked pepper and wild sweet anise flavors that stretch out on the zesty finish. Drink now through 2023. 6,200 cases made." — TF (Nov 15, 2018)

91 Points & Editors’ Choice - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:

"A velvety texture and extremely concentrated black-fruit flavors make this full-bodied wine delicious to savor. It has beautiful big tannins that are well integrated, luxurious blackberry, sage and cedar flavors, plus great length on the finish." - Jim Gordon (9/1/2017)
