Easton, Zinfandel (Thanksgiving)
Amador County, California 2015 (750 ml)
The 2015 Easton Zinfandel is one of the finest Amador County Zins out there and was rated 92 points by Wine Spectator (#45 on their Top 100 Wines of 2018!). And yes, you read the vintage correctly. Bill Easton, one of the pioneering producers of the Sierra Foothills, holds his wines back until he feels they are in prime drinking form. The 2015 has full black cherry and blackberry fruit aromas with a beautiful balance and a big, sumptuous, and juicy mouth feel. It also presents complex spicy aromas, with a nice creamy texture derived from the 10 months time it receives in, only, French oak barrels.
