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."
Editorial Reviews for Edmeades Winery Zinfandel Mendocino County
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
