04/12/2016 – Edmeades, Zinfandel 2013

(2016) Zinfandel appears on the shelves as cheap 'blush' wines, but it has a far more noble heritage than that, producing some excellent, if large-scaled, red wines in Calfifornia. This from old vines and aged in oak for 10 months is opulent and creamy, the nose having real brightness with notes of pomegranate and cherry, as well as a creamy, chocolaty spice. In the mouth it is big, generous and deeply fruity, loads of sweet fruit married to plush oak, but there is spice and a cherry lift to the acidity. Crowd-pleasing stuff of it's bold style.
