Edmeades Winery Zinfandel Mendocino Ridge Perli Vineyard 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Strawberry fruit tops a nose which shows off hints of oily seeds and a touch of beefy white pepper. Round on entry with an early suggestion of sweetness, this is a bit of a throwback style with plenty of rich black cherry pie flavors supported by supple tannins and modest acidity. There’s nice intensity of flavor here, and a smooth texture, but it does lack a bit of complexity and detail, though many people won’t much care. 89 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."
