Easton Wines was founded in 1984 by husband and wife team Bill Easton and Jane O’Riordan. Winemaker Bill Easton began his career in the wine business working for small California wineries. In the late 70's he founded Solano Cellars, a wine shop in Berkeley, California, specializing in small artisan producers from around the world. From years in the shop and traveling extensively in Europe, Bill's palate and style of winemaking developed. He creates wines that are balanced and elegant, with complexity that develops as the wines age in bottle. The French call it élevage, which is "raising" the wine in the bottle. There is an art to this style of winemaking and great pleasure in a wine that is ready to drink, while still showing great promise for future aging.
This Zinfandel is not your typical California oak bomb, rather this is balanced, with unique expressions of the wonderful terroir of the Sierra Foothills boasting nearly 3200 ft in elevation and rich in ancient minerals. The 2015 is made from 20-80 year old vines planted to granitic soils in 7-8 different mountain sites. Dry farmed. Hand-harvested. Fermented in stainless steel. Aged 11 months in 10% new Burgundy barrels.
