Our Wines

Using grapes grown in Mendocino County’s rugged coastal mountains, Edmeades crafts bold, intense Zinfandels of distinctive character and personality. We work side by side with a small group of growers, who year after year produce some of Mendocino County’s most highly-prized grapes. We prefer a delicate touch in our cellar, allowing each vineyard to be fully expressed in the wines we make.

TASTING NOTES

Offering plenty of Zinny character, it’s dry and brisk in mouth-cleansing acidity, with soft tannins and rich flavors of dusty baking spices, blackberry purée, cherry compote, cola, shaved dark chocolate, red licorice and a savory coating of toasted cedar wood. A great accompaniment to barbecue, game, roasted chicken, stews and lasagna.

TASTING NOTES

The 2014 Edmeades Anderson Valley Gewurztraminer displays aromas of lemon verbena, fresh rose petals, stone fruits and citrus blossoms. The citrus character continues to the palate, with flavors of orange zest and Meyer lemon, and transitions to sweeter nectarine notes. The round texture, bright acidity, and overall freshness make this wine versatile, whether enjoying as an aperitif, out on the patio, or accompanying light and delicate dishes.

Edmeades 2014 Gianoli Vineyard Zinfandel

2014 Gianoli Vineyard

Zinfandel

E133C96D-CB0A-D264-BF3E-AE32A8C0C1D5 E133C96D-CB0A-D264-BF3E-AE32A8C0C1D5
TASTING NOTES

So broad and deep are the flavors in this mountain-grown, to call it intense is an understatement. Massive in briary, brambly blackberries, it has layers of baking spices, especially cloves and cinnamon, orange zest, and a sweet, concentrated burst of liquefied red licorice. There’s also meaty note: think teriyaki beef tartare. The alcohol is high, as indeed it has to be in a wine like this, which would not be ripe without it; but there’s no heat, just a mouth-filling warmth that rewards slow sipping.
