2015 Easton Zinfandel, Amador, Sierra Foothills, California
In 1985, our friends Jane O’Riordan and her husband Bill Easton founded the highly acclaimed Terre Rouge and Easton Wines in Amador County’s Shenandoah Valley. Bill is recognized as one of California’s first Rhone pioneers and was only the fourth member of the Rhone Rangers to receive its Lifetime Achievement Award. The winery has been honored by Wine and Spirits Magazine’s Top 100 Winery list for 2019 and 2016. Among many other accolades, this Easton Amador Zinfandel 2015 was awarded Wine Spectator’s #45/Top 100 Wines of 2018.
With the upcoming “shelter-in-place” BBQ season approaching, we couldn’t think of a better local wine value to enjoy with your ribs, tri-tip and brisket!
“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.” – 92 points, Wine Spectator
