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.
