Drink now, or cellar for a few years. Decanting is optional, up to 30 minutes before serving.

In California’s northern reaches, Edmeades winery craft a variety of rugged and robust mountain wines. They have called the region home since the 1960s when Dr Donald Edmeades planted a parcel of grapes near the village of Philo in Anderson Valley. It is currently under the ownership of Jackson Family Wines and is led by chief wine-maker Ben Salazar.

Anderson Valley is just 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean and harbours one of the coolest climates in California. Rain, fog and salty ocean winds are funnelled into the valley, which runs approximately east to west. Slightly further south in the canyon, warmer climate varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and intense Zinfandels can ripen, each with a unique and distinctly New World style.

This Zinfandel features splashes of both Syrah and Petite Syrah, together making up 20% of the blend. It is bold and aromatic on the nose, with notes of cassis, roasted coffee, and warm, homely cinnamon. Its deep red colour is matched by its striking flavour and potency - this is a perfect bottle to share with friends. Full-bodied and round on the palate, notes of jammy blackberry and chocolate give way to plum and oak on the finish. Perfect company for smoke-rich food, gamey meats, or lentil-based dishes.
