Edmeades Winery Zinfandel Mendocino County Shamrock Vineyard 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Deep and earthy on a nose that is rich with sweet, jammy cherry fruit. This is a biggish wine with lots of jammy fruit flavors, but at the same time showing nice spiced oak complexity. The finish shows more sweetness and lingering nutty oak note. A powerful and dark wine. 88 points

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."
