The 2014 Mendocino County Zinfandel begins with warm and intense aromas of cinnamon and cloves. Those spices give way to aromas of blackberries, currants, and sage. The texture is round and the fruit expression is concentrated and lush. Soft tannins accentuate the richness of the wine, while pleasant acidity keeps it fresh on the finish. Char-broiled burgers, slathered in your favorite sauce, are a natural partner for these robust, fruity Zins. Barbecued chicken, eggplant Parmesan or a rich winter stew of short ribs also are ideal. Game is a classic pairing, as are lentils. Edmeades Zins have a special affinity for goat cheese or smoked Gouda. Other great pairings include Beef Short Rib Tacos, Tri-tip with Zinfandel Sauce, Sweet & Sour Bacon Chutney, or Zinfandel Chili.

Wine EnthusiastTight, concentrated aromas of black fig and dark chocolate meet beefy, earthy and ripe berry flavors in this high-powered, concentrated wine. It has a full body and firm tannins that give it a powerful structure, with nice depth and a lingering chocolate and cherry finish.
