Editorial Reviews for Edmeades Mendocino County Zinfandel
Dark and a bit matte on the nose with inky, deep, slightly mineral aromas. Smooth and juicy in the mouth, this shows off simple black fruit in a seamless, easy-drinking style that gains nice cut plum and blackberry fruit on the slightly tannic finish. 86 points

Good Zinfandel for the price. Spicy flavor and great with filet Mignon.
We loved it. Sweet and lots of alcohol
Not very interesting, the wine was not bad just not complex or challenging to my palate.
i have to agree with Jon of Sonoma.
It was funny to see how in agreement we all are. I logged on after drinking this to post almost exactly the message Jon just posted. At this price, there are a lot of wines I'd prefer. Try Four Vines Zin for 11.99.
A lovely wine - big, fruity, slightly sweet with a nice crunchy berry finish went well with the Confit of Duck with Cranberry Relish on a Polenta Croute. Teh wine is a blend of 85.45 Zinfandel, 7.2% Petit Syrah, 3.7% Merlot, 2.7% Syrah and 1% Grenache. http://www.spittoon.biz/wine_and_food_matching_ideas_f.html
External Reviews for Edmeades Mendocino County Zinfandel
This is a beautiful 2006 Zinfandel that sells for a song. This has got to be one of the better values, and of course, 2006 looks to be a vastly superior vintage to 2005 for Zinfandel. This wine, which has some Petite Sirah, Merlot, Syrah, and Grenache blended in, exhibits deep ruby color and a big, sweet nose of peppery black cherry and raspberry liqueur intermixed with spring flowers and earth. The wine is medium to full-bodied, ripe, and altogether a hedonistic mouthful of big Zinfandel. Drink it over the next 3ndash;4 years.
A spunky little Zinfandel thatrsquo;s notable for its wild berry, white pepper and mint aromas and its supple raspberry, mocha and anise flavors. Drink now.
A barrel sample of the 2005 Zinfandel was a strong effort in a vintage where this grape did not fare well because of a lack of heat. This cuveacute;e exhibits plenty of tar, black pepper, sweet and sour cherries, incense, herbs, and spice. Dark ruby-colored and medium-bodied with a hefty 15+% alcohol, it should drink well during its first 3ndash;4 years of life.
Scents of sweet cherries and fresh crushed red berries lend this zin brightness, as does a floral character, like jasmine. The freshness of fruit develops and lengthens with air; a lean zin to serve with lamb stew.
Bring on the barbecue for this explosive, high-octane Zin. Ripe to the point of overripe, it shows flavors of blackberries, currants, cassis and raisins, liberally dusted with crushed black pepper and unsweetened cocoa. The bigtime tannins will cut through rich meats slathered in BBQ sauce.
Ripe and zesty, with dark plum and licorice aromas and wild berry, toasty sage and cracked pepper flavors that finish with appealingly rustic tannins. Drink now through 2012.
When I drink this wine, I think of raspberry cobbler. Edmeades is a compilation of Zinfandel rounded out with a little Petit Sirah, Merlot, Syrah and Grenache. The partnerships between these varietals offers up medium to full bodied wine with a nose of raspberries, spice, cedar, salted apples and cherries with exploding flavors of bramble, raspberries, vanilla, tart cherries all leading to a stonefruit finish. It is a better representation of Zinfandel than other wines that are composed of 100% of the varietal. Drink now for immediate gratification or wait 3ndash;5 years for a more complex hedonistic experience!
