Edmeades Winery:
The first row of vines were barely in the ground when the neighbors began lining up to lean on their shovels and scoff. Grapes in Anderson Valley? Nobody could make it work, they insisted. The naysayers grew so vocal that Dr. Donald Edmeades dragged some old redwood planks out from behind the barn, found some red paint, and christened his vineyard with a sign out on Highway 128: "Edmeades' Folly."

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.

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.

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.

Winemaker Notes - This year's tannins are soft and supple, the cherry fruit is vivacious, and the addition of Petite Sirah and Syrah adds a nice rural feel with earthy notes and some nice structure. Aging the wine should help it evolve into a nicely layered and complex Zinfandel, with toast and smokiness from the oak picking up in intensity.

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!
