Edmeades Mendocino Zinfandel 2010 750mL 90 Points-Tasting Panel, 90 Points-Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of ripe cherries and blueberries mingle with cocoa powder and graham crackers in the 2010 Mendocino Zinfandel. The lushness of the fruit gives the wine wonderful breadth and texture. Petite Sirah and Syrah lend black fruit to the blend, while their tannins frame the wine nicely. Subtle notes of toasted oak, caramel, and freshly roasted coffee linger on the finish.
90 Points - Tasting Panel
Fresh, bright and juicy with acidity and lively black raspberry fruit; long and showing smoke, spice and chocolate.
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
With a heady bouquet of berry and peppery spice, new Edmeades winemaker Ben Salazar is showing great talent with Mendocino Zinfandel, producing a fairly large-scale bottling full of intense spice and soft tannins. Graham crackers and oak play gingerly in the background. This is a wonderful wine and a new beginning for Edmeades.
