Mission Briefing

Codename:

Flown the nest

Today’s Edmeades 2011 Piffero Vineyard Zinfandel is a delectable, delicious wine that deserves a spot in your cellar. This budget-friendly wine was made by Ben Salazar, who has made wines at Cardinale Winery, La Crema, and Isabel Estates in New Zealand - to name a few.

Ben brings his decades of winemaking experience to bear on today’s delicious, complex, budget-friendly Edmeades Zinfandel.

You’ll be enticed by aromas of grilled cherry, blackberry compote, braised plum, cherry cordial, clove, cinnamon, cigar leaf, dark chocolate, bramble, black pepper and dried twig.

The palate explodes with juicy, rich flavors of black cherry, smoky blackberry, bramble bush, dark toasted coconut, red currant, dried violet, dried earth, baker’s chocolate, spice and black pepper.

This is a structured wine that is full of aromas, flavors and… feeling.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Ruby rosewood core, with perfect clarity. At the edge, glinting auburn. After swirling, ropey, tightly-spaced tears crawl very slowly down the glass.

Smell:

Grilled cherry, blackberry compote, braised plum, cherry cordial, clove, cinnamon, cigar leaf, dark chocolate, bramble, black pepper and dried twig.

Taste:

Black cherry, smoky blackberry, bramble bush, dark toasted coconut, red currant, dried violet, dried earth, baker’s chocolate, spice and black pepper.

Finish:

This is a juicy and complex wine, from beginning to end. As fruit and earthen elements fade, a crushed velvet dryness drys the palate, starting with the lips and cheeks and spreading inward, eventually ending on the tongue.

Pairing:

Enjoy with your favorite winter beef stew, and hold onto a few bottles for coming springtime BBQs.
