Winemaker Notes

This delicious Zin has thick brambly blackberry fruit with pepper, anise, clove, and other exotic spices. The wine is fat and mouth-filling with great persistence on the palate. Like all our EASTON Zinfandels, this wine was aged exclusively in French oak. The wine ages remarkably.

Wine Enthusiast
A beautiful bottling that will prosper with time, easily until 2024, this grippy, earthy Zin offers soft plum and brambly blackberry amid a pretty, floral nose and plenty of peppery anise and earth. Aged in French oak from low-yielding vines originally planted in 1865, this is a premier example of Fiddletown Zin made with precision and care. Cellar Selection.

Easton, California
Easton Winery Image
Bill Easton is one of the pioneers of Amador's modern winemaking era, founding his winery in 1984, and his wines still lead the pack in terms of quality. Easton's high elevation sites reach up to 3,200 feet and contribute to the complexity of the wines.

Easton puts his name on his non-Rhône varietals wines, those that have traditionally worked the best in Amador County and the Sierra Foothills: ancient and old-vine Zinfandel, Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sauvignon Blanc. Under the Easton label he also bottles small selections of varietals new to the Sierra Foothills: Grenache Blanc, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Franc.

Easton makes wines that are unique and site-specific with a sense of place all of their own. He farms and runs his winery sustainably, even relying entirely on solar power for his tasting room and winemaking facilities.

Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel has secured it’s title as the darling of California vintners by adapting well to the states’ diverse microclimates and landscapes. Born in Croatia, it later made its way to southern Italy where it was named Primitivo. Fortunately, the imperial nursery of Vienna catalogued specimens of the vine, which sourced a journey to New England in 1829. Parading the true American spirit, Zinfandel found a new home in California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Somm Secret—California's ancient vines of Zinfandel are those that survived the neglect of Prohibition; today these vines produce the most concentrated, ethereal and complex examples.
