Edmeades Mendocino County 2009 Zinfandel, $14.99-$16.99, 89 points, has a slightly cloudy ruby color with orange tints and a broad clear rim.
The aroma is toasty red grape and sweet red licorice.
Having good acidity, mild tannin, and some heat (15.5% alcohol), plenty of flavors complement here; with red cherry, java, licorice and eucalyptus, but the finish is only fair with the trailing palate, some spice, and more heat.
This is a value Zinfandel, if you like a bit of heat, but the flavor is very good.
