I perceived this to be very young, light and well-balanced red wine, with a very delicate floral bouquet. It smelled like a gorgeous subtle perfume that I was very tempted to dab on my wrists. I tasted notes of vanilla, rose, jasmine, musk and jammy wildberries. I haven't been able to stop thinking about this wine for about 3 months....positively spellbinding.

A spice box of red fruit and chocolate, this medium-bodied wine’s intense berry flavor makes it the perfect match for lean cuts of meat. Serve this selection with garlic-rubbed fillet mignon and a red wine reduction with asparagus and browned shallots. Lean beef, though tender, needs a concentrated berry flavor to help with the lack of fat in the meat.

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 3-5 years for a more complex hedonistic experience!

A spunky little Zinfandel that's notable for its wild berry, white pepper and mint aromas and its supple raspberry, mocha and anise flavors. Drink now.

The 2007 Zinfandel Mendocino is a super-generic cuvee boasting a deep ruby hue as well as a stunning nose of sweet, briery black cherries, black currants, spice, and an underlying floral character. Abundant flavor, medium to full body, impressive pur... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Zinfandel wine from California in USA. 2007 Edmeades Estate Zinfandel 750ml

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.

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.

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 3-4 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

The tannins are soft and supple, but the acidity comes through with a bit more acid structure than in past vintages and stays with you till the cows come home. We always add a little Syrah and Petite Sirah for the mid palate, filling in the hole of the donut, but this year it is a little more pronounced in the flavors and aromas, hence the gamey and meatiness underneath all the mixed fruits.
