Edmeades Zinfandel Shamrock Vineyard Mendocino 2011

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

Dark plum and rich mixed berries on the nose with dried fig and starchy dates with a note of baking spice to boot. This is pleasantly earthy in the mouth but still carries a real depth of fruit, with tart cranberry notes and ripe blackberry notes mixing amidst a full spice box and vanilla bean finish that comes with some red licorice and a touch of chocolate.

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."

A little oaky and herbal one the nose with a black cherry blackberry profile that is pure and intense. Rich, chewy and fairly powerful in the mouth with lovely fruit that shows a gentle sweetness and a streak of vanilla that drives through the lively and long finish. This is perhaps a bit simple but very attractive in a lush way. 91pts

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

Fantastic Mendocino zin! A touch of vanilla on the nose, dark chocolate covered black cherries on the palate with just a hint of salinity and acidity to make your mouth water. This is full of dark fruits but not jammy or over drawn. Although this big red comes in at 16% abv, it's not hot, but well balanced and definitely a keeper.
