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

The 2017 Mendocino County Zinfandel begins with concentrated aromas of baking spices including; cinnamon and cloves. Those spices give way to aromas of blackberries, black currants, and dried sage. The texture is round, and the fruit expression is focused and lush. Subtle and integrated tannins accentuate the richness of the wine, while pleasant acidity keeps it fresh on the finish.

Always the most savory of the Edmeades Zinfandels, aromas of bay leaf, cherry pit, crushed cranberries, and dried herbs comprise the wine’s bouquet. Flavors of fresh blackberries, cherries, and blood orange are framed by bright acidity and firm tannins.

Edmeades 2014 Gianoli Vineyard Zinfandel

2014 Gianoli Vineyard

Zinfandel

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.
