Staff Pick Notes

Up next is another Astor cool room time machine and you know how much I love these. An absolutely stunning library release Zinfandel that’s been lovingly cellared by our talented friends at Easton (from the Terre Rouge/Easton Artisan Wines group) for twenty years, just waiting to blow your mind like it did mine. With fruit from Easton’s estate, which includes vines over a hundred years old, this wine is the very definition of power and finesse working together in perfect harmony. On the nose, fig, blackberry, cedar, and cigar box leap from the glass.

In this bottle lies a world-class wine experience that might change the way you look at Zinfandel forever.
