Winemaker's Notes

This is the fourth release of our popularly-priced Amador County Zinfandel. The 2000 has full black cherry and blackberry fruit aromas with a beautiful balance and a sumptuous, juicy mouthfeel. It also presents moderately spicy aromas and some nice creamy nuances from 11 months aging in French oak barrels. This wine has become out popular, but serious cru Beaujolais-styled. Although drinkable now, it gains complexity with bottle age. We think this 2000 bottling is as good or better than any of our previous bottlings. It is a great introduction to our Easton line of four distinctly different Zinfandels.
