Wine Review: This ruby colored Zinfandel from Edmeades is a real fruit bomb. It opens with a fragrant black raspberry and red cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, rich, balanced and very fruit forward. The flavor profile is a tasty blackberry jam with notes of blueberry and mild oak. I also detected a hint of cherry-cola and touch of minerality. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins and fruit flavors are nicely prolonged. This yummy Zin would pair well with Theresa’s homemade meatloaf. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Ripe with some raisiny notes, but the main flavors are briary, brambly black raspberries and cherries, coated in dark chocolate, sprinkled with dusty brown spices (black pepper, cinnamon, clove) and drizzled with black currant liqueur. It’s luscious, full-bodied and exuberant, with wonderfully smooth, complex tannins and bright acidity that keeps the richness tautly balanced.
