Easton Amador County 2011 Zinfandel, $12.23-$17.77 89 points, appeared rosewood red trending maroon with a thin clear rim at the leggy glass wall.
Subtle earth notes with grape and cedar aromas were good.
The medium body carried surprising good acidity and a moderately unfolding tannin. (this is NO fruit bomb).
Flavors-hints of coffee and tobacco complimented the black cherry and mulberry flavors.
Finished on an escalating tannin, tart cherry, a hint of bourbon, and subtle spice.
