Edmunds St. John El Dorado County Bone-Jolly Rosé 2012
"(made from 51% grenache blanc and 49% vermentino): Light, bright gold. Intensely perfumed bouquet evokes nectarine, orange zest and chamomile, with a chalky overtone. Juicy and expansive on the palate, offering lively pit fruit flavors and a subtle note of honey. Finishes smooth and long, with lingering spiciness and a hint of honeysuckle...90" IWC 5/12
We have little taste for most of the wines of the New World and Australia; however, we greatly admire some of those produced by the "second generation" of California vintners, ... above all, those of the astonishing Steve Edmunds; his wines do more than express the particular personality of the vintner and have entered the arena of those that are an expression of the land and culture.

Made from California-grown gamay, this bright pink wine has fresh strawberry and orange zest aromas giving it a bright mineral lift. Crisp and energetic, with clean citrus and red berry flavors and a long, brisk finish.
Yeah, we couldn't believe it either. A Gamay from California that tastes like Gamay! This is clean and fruity with aromas of violets and cherries. It's a charmer and a wine you can nuzzle up to anytime.
A fresh, vibrant rosé made from 100% Gamay grapes. This shows flavors of wild strawberries and undertones of smoke: to us, it smells exactly like summer. Practicing Organic.
