Edmeades is pure Mendocino, famous for its limited bottlings from the Mendocino Ridge and the Redwood and Ukiah valleys of Northern California. It is the authentic taste of one of California’s final viticultural frontiers, the Anderson Valley. It all started in 1963 when Dr. Donald Edmeades, a cardiologist from Pasadena, planted 24 acres of vines, becoming the first modern-day grape grower in this cool, coastal region. He founded his winery and launched the
Edmeades brand in 1972. The Jackson family purchased the winery and its vineyards in 1988.*

The Edmeades approach is traditional and natural; they take a non-interventionist approach to their craft. They believe in native yeast fermentations in small, open-top bins, hand punch downs, minimal manipulation, and no fining or filtration at bottling. The simplicity of their methods allows the soils and climates of each site to be clearly heard in their wines.*

The 2021 Edmeades Zinfandel Mendocino County is a blend of 80.5% zinfandel, 16.5% syrah, and 3% petite sirah aged for 8 months in French and American oak barrels. It opens with focused aromas of baking spices and gives way to flavors of blackberries, cherries, black plums, and chocolate-dipped strawberries. Bold yet integrated tannins help give complexity to the wine, while the balanced acidity keeps it fresh on the finish.* Check out the press!

92 points, Decanter:
"Coastal vineyards from Mendocino and native fermentation produce a concentrated and balanced expression of mountain zinfandel. Aromas of Christmas spice, cinder, and baked blackberry tart introduce this rich zinfandel from small growers throughout Mendocino County. Lushly fruited, the palate shows concentrated flavors of plum blackberry compote and a density of dark cherry flesh. There is plenty of zest and spice to this wine with clove and cinnamon, but it finishes undeniably fresh." (10/26/23)
