Zinfandel, Edmeades, Mendocino County, USA 2012
The 2011 Edmeades Mendocino Zinfandel is loaded with aromas of red cherries and subtle notes of toasted vanilla.
This year's tannins are once again soft and supple, the fruit is powerful, and the additions of Petite Sirah and Syrah have added a nice rural feel while also providing nice structure.
Aging the wine should evolve into a nicely layered and complex Zinfandel, with toast and smokiness from the oak picking up in intensity.
