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." – Description from Kursulla

  • Edmeades Shamrock Vineyard Zinfandel Mendocino County 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Powerful aromatics of earthy salinity, ripe raspberry and black cherry and a floral violet note on the nose. This is nicely heated on the palate, with a well rounded spice box of cinnamon, clove and anise coming through and more black cherry and bright red fruits washing over towards the finish that turns floral again right before it becomes all...

  • Edmeades Petite Sirah Mendocino County 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Steady blackberry preserve fruit note on the nose with a bit of heat. This is silky smooth in the mouth, with round and rich ripe blackberry flavors, juicy dark plum and candied fig and almond notes. Tannins are quite strong and provide excellent structure - this carries a bit of weight but is still easy drinking and fun. Read More

  • Edmeades' Folly Blend 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Juicy and full of blackberry, black cherry and baking spices on the nose with more red fruits like red currant and cherries poking through as the wine opens. Full and rich in the mouth, with dark black cherry flavors, hints of cocoa, well integrated oak and vanilla, and black cherry throughout. Acidity is good and supports the wine well but ther...

    Wine review by Snooth Editorial


  • Last week, we looked at a group of ubiquitous white wines. All of these wines were under fifteen dollars. Some of them were under ten dollars. But what about the reds? Research bodies such as California Poytechnic University and the American Association of Wine Economics have reported data demonstrating a consumer preference for red wine over wh... Read More

    Wine review by XZYMURGIST


  • When we talk about Zinfandel we often tend to focus on those most familiar to us. Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma Valley, Amador County, and even Napa get their fair share of attention, though just as often we tend to gloss over some terrific wine producing regions. I’m sure that on the whole my coverage of Zinfandel this year will be equally lopsided ... Read More

    From the article Unheralded Zinfandel


  • Edmeades Mendocino Zinfandel 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A little tight on the nose and only gently fruity with mineral and oak base notes under subtle herb and blackcurrant aromas. Tense and a little spicy up front with fine clarity on the palate. This exhibits good transparency and clarity in the mouth with slightly jammy by not terribly intense fruit. Nice length and focus on the finish which shows... Read More

  • Edmeades Zinfandel Shamrock Vineyard Mendocino 2011

    Snoothrank:

    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 Read More
