Tasting Notes                         

87   2008   Edmeades  Mendocino County Zinfandel   3/14/11 ($16)

  15.4% alc
Color: Medium deep garnet. (3.0) Bouquet: Zinberry fruit, spice and milk-chocolatey oak. Nice, but lacking distinction. (2.5) Body: Good fruit and acidity. Ripe, but handles the alcohol well. Coats somewhat. (2.5) Flavor: Parallels bouquet, but with more delicious Zin fruit here. (3.0) Finish: Parallels bouquet. Oak adds a little bitterness. (2.5)
Overall: A very enjoyable, but simple Zinfandel with ripe fruit, chocolatey oak and very good spice. Relatively well balanced, but could use more distinction. Solid for the price. (13.5)
