ZINFANDEL 2015 Amador County, Sierra Foothills
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer EASTON
Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO. Bill Easton has been making wine in Amador County for more than three decades and this Zin is worth a detour. Very deep intense purple colour. Very bright, juicy, plummy-black-cherry-raspberry purée nose with some gently cedary notes. Fairly dry, medium to medium-full bodied, quite well structured, tangy, fairly juicy, intense, ripe plum-cherry-cassis flavours with a lingering, fairly high acid, mineral-tinged, fairly dense, mouthfilling, black currant finish. Has 14.5% alcohol and 6 g/L residual sugar. The 2012 was released on August 8, 2015 at $27.95. CSPC 328377
