Mendocino is more than a geographical location; it's a state of mind. Cross the border from Sonoma County and your perspective suddenly changes. Edmeades is pure Mendocino style. It's the authentic taste of one of California's final viticultural frontiers. At Edmeades, the approach is traditional and natural; the methods are decidedly low-tech. The simplicity of this allows the soils and climates to be clearly heard in the wine.
Mendocino Zinfandel expresses aromas of fresh cherries, blueberries, and plums. Generous fruit characters transition to notes of leather, tilled earth, and sweet tobacco leaf. Hints of smoke, vanilla bean, and pie crust accentuate a long finish. (from the vintner)
