The 2016 Ed's Red is an enticing, flavorful and full-bodied wine in the Ed's Red tradition, with aromas and flavors that include plums, cherries and spice. Absent mammoth (or vegetarian equivalent) the wine pairs well with a wide range of cuisine and is enjoyable any day of the week.
Mammoth & Man
That’s me in the photo: Ed, the winemaker and the “Ed” in Ed’s Red.
I’ve been asked around the campfire “What is the best food to pair with this big, bold wine?” and my response is always “Mammoth!” Turns out, the mammoth is a strong mascot for our wine —powerful and imposing—and since 2008, we have embraced it on our label. There is even a life-size mammoth painting in our barn, seen behind me here.
Since 2004, my quest has been to create a bold, characterful wine that can be enjoyed with friends, with food or on its own any day of the week. Drawing from the best winegrowing regions in California has allowed me to create a wine that satisfies, vintage after vintage.
If you, like me, have been searching for a bold, flavorful, dare I say mammoth red wine … your hunt is over.
