Edmeades is pure Mendocino, famous for its limited bottlings from the Mendocino Ridge and the Redwood and Ukiah valleys of Northern California. It is the authentic taste of one of California’s final viticultural frontiers — the Anderson Valley. It all started in 1963 when Dr. Donald Edmeades, a  cardiologist from Pasadena, planted 24 acres of vines, becoming the first modern-day grape grower in this cool, coastal region. He founded his winery and launched the Edmeades brand in 1972. The Jackson family purchased the winery and its vineyards in 1988.

Their approach is traditional and natural; their methods are decidedly low tech. Edmeades believe in native yeast fermentations in small, open-top bins, hand punch downs, minimal manipulation and no fining or filtration at bottling. The simplicity of the vineyards methods allow the soils and climates of each site to be clearly heard in the wines and enjoy full expression in every vintage.

The Mendocino County Zinfandel begins with focused aromas of baking spices including; cinnamon and anise. The aromatic spices give way to aromas of blackberries, black currants, black plums and chocolate dipped strawberries. Bold yet integrated tannins accentuate the richhess of the wine, while pleasant acidity keeps it fresh on the finish.
