2006 Edmeades Zinfandel Mendocino County

Alcohol by volume: 15.4%
Price at time of purchase: $13.99 (K&L)
Type: Zinfandel
Principal varietal(s): Zinfandel

This is possibly the best buy around in heavy-duty Zinfandel. I often prefer this Edmeades' "generic" Mendocino Zin to their single-vineyard Zins, and the 2006 single-vineyard offerings are going to have to be awfully good to top this one. Lots of fruit - mainly bing cherry, blackberries - on top of a very earthy core. Classy weight, balance, and structure for a wine this big, lacking the hotness and clumsiness I've sometimes tasted in earlier vintages. It is an absolute steal at $13.99. - HK 2008-09-08
