Zinfandel seems to get a bad rap like Beaujolais Nouveau. However this particular Zin from Mendocino is excellent. Although topping off at 15% alcohol it does not distract from it’s smooth, medium to full body presentation.It has flavors of berry, coffee and spice and a nice lingering finish. You can buy Edmeades for around $19 a bottle retail. I prefer the 05. That was a good year for Califonia wines, particularly Zinfandels.
