Winemaker's Notes

86% Zinfandel, 12% Petite Sirah, 2% Grenache

"Focused aromas of cherries, spice, roasted coffee, and oak vanillin lead way to more funky aromas of earth and minerals. The Grenache adds a perfumed, spicy fruitiness to the aromas. The Petite Sirah fills in the middle palate with meaty, darker fruit flavors. Another vintage with a higher percentage of Zinfandel in the blend shows bright upfront fruitiness on the palate with a long, lingering berry finish. There is greater structure and acidity than our previous vintages with the chalky tannins from Redwood Valley fruit peaking through the finish. The fruit is packed tight and juicy, adding zest to the firm structured finish. The 2005 has excellent cellaring potential and will be soft, supple and smooth in five to ten years."
–Van Williamson, Winemaker

Learn About Edmeades Map ItMap It

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.
