Edmeades Mendocino Zinfandel
|Region||California, North Coast, Mendocino|
The 2017 Mendocino County Zinfandel begins with concentrated aromas of baking spices including; cinnamon and cloves. Those spices give way to aromas of blackberries, black currants, and dried sage. The texture is round, and the fruit expression is focused and lush. Subtle and integrated 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.
