    Winemaker Notes

    From a cool harvest comes the most European-styled Syrah we have made to date. One other factor that explains the stylistic uniqueness of this wine is that part of blend is from two higher elevation vineyard sites that approach 3000 feet. They ripen later and mature at lower sugar levels. These two soprano lots were blended with one of our Shenandoah Valley lots which was more basso profundo. The resulting combination harmonizes and sings! The upslope provide finesse and wonderful meaty, white pepper nuances, while the downslope lot provides structure, concentration and a great smoky spicy Syrah sensibility.

    Domaine de la Terre Rouge, Sierra Foothills, California
    Terre Rouge is located in California on the West Slope of the Sierra Nevada in Amador County’s Shenandoah Valley. The wines are made from vineyards in four Sierra Foothill counties: Placer, El Dorado, Amador, and Calaveras. They also source fruit from one vineyard site in the soon-to-be new Clements appellation.

    Terre Rouge's style emphasizes deep color, balanced flavors, full middle palate, and a long finish, with power and finesse. These wines gain complexity with age. Their goal has been to make the finest wines possible from the region - wines that transcend time and place and can be placed on the table with the best wines of the world.

    President and Winemaker Bill Easton has been in the wine trade for over 30 years, not only as a winemaker, but also as a wine retailer, importer, and vineyard consultant. He has been handcrafting Terre Rouge Wines since the mid-1980's. Bill brings his well-honed palate to the table each time he makes one of our wines. He has an uncanny ability to create wines that express both power and finesse. He is not satisfied by making wines that are just well extracted, but strives to craft wines of nuance and complexity.
