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 distinctive wine originates from one of the estate vineyards surrounding our winery. These mountain vines produce intensely-flavored fruit that creates a rich, complex, elegant wine. Extended aging in the finest French oak. followed by bottle aging, adds further refinement and intricacy.

This Cabernet Franc is inspired by the restrained styles of the Loire's Chinon and Bourgueil regions of France. Slate soils at 2400', whole cluster fruit, native yeast, foot treading and neutral oak make this a wine geek's delight.

SKU: 14_E_ZIN_EST

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.
