Edmeades Zinfandel

Edmeades Zinfandel 2013

Mendocino County, California, United StatesSaline-scented, this dense Mendocino zinfandel is from nearly thirty-year-old vines, sourced from across the AVA. Old vineyards are the base of Edmeades, with Ciapusci Vineyard planted in 1878, Perli Vineyard planted in the late 1800’s, Zeni Vineyard planted in 1910 and Piffero Vineyard planted in 1930. Wild yeast fermented, this was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Dense smoked plum, cassis jam, ripe blackberries, violets, cracked peppercorn and a dusky, musk perfume. There is a swell of acidity here to carry, but the finish, at 15 percent, is still warming and cinnamon clad.Tasted: 15 June 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 23.00 specialty listing AB 22.00 fine wine stores Producer: EdmeadesDistributors: Summit Fine Wines
