EASTON Reds

After establishing Terre Rouge in Amador County in the late 80s, we started the EASTON label in 1991 for wines that are not Rhône varietals. Amador County is known for its very old vine Zinfandel, some dating back to the 1860s, and the EASTON portfolio focuses primarily on Zin. We also make small lots of Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc under this label. Just like with our Terre Rouge wines, all Easton wines are aged in French oak and further bottle aged under our "élevage" program until ready to drink.

This wine was conceived by thinking about how "Zeinfandall" might have been been made and tasted, without aid of modern winemaking equipment, after it first arrived in California in 1852.  This wine is more floral, shaped by whole-cluster fermentation.  Serve it chilled.
