Winemaker Notes

Aromas of ripe cherries and blueberries mingle with cocoa powder and graham crackers in the 2010 Mendocino Zinfandel. The lushness of the fruit gives the wine wonderful breadth and texture. Petite Sirah and Syrah lend black fruit to the blend, while their tannins frame the wine nicely. Subtle notes of toasted oak, caramel, and freshly roasted coffee linger on the finish.

Critical Acclaim

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

With a heady bouquet of berry and peppery spice, new Edmeades winemaker Ben Salazar is showing great talent with Mendocino Zinfandel, producing a fairly large-scale bottling full of intense spice and soft tannins. Graham crackers and oak play gingerly in the background. This is a won­derful wine and a new beginning for Edmeades.

Edmeades
Established in 1962, Edmeades is located in Mendocino County in Northern California, a place with long traditions in viticulture dating to the turn of the century when the gnarled vines they use in their Zinfandel wines were planted. While winemaker Van Williamson has great regard for time-honored methods, innovative winemaking takes place in this secluded Anderson Valley enclave. Being in close proximity to the ocean, cold climate plays a major part in producing award-winning wines of generous varietal character.
