Winemaker's Notes:

"More classic, the deep ruby-colored 2001 Zinfandel Mendocino exhibits a smorgasbord of aromas, including resiny pine forest notes, black currants, cherry jam, licorice and incense. Deep and full bodied, with great fruit, tremendous freshness, and a vigorous, exuberant, flamboyant finish, it will provide pleasure over the next 4-5 years."

About Edmeades:

Established in 1962, Edmeades is located in Mendocino County in Northern California, a place with long traditions in viticulture dating to the turn of the century when the gnarled vines they use in their Zinfandel wines were planted. While winemaker Van Williamson has great regard for time-honored methods, innovative winemaking takes place in this secluded Anderson Valley enclave. Being in close proximity to the ocean, cold climate plays a major part in producing award-winning wines of generous varietal character.
