Edmunds St. John Gamay Noir El Dorado County Bone-Jolly 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

100% Gamay from 3000' elevation in El Dorado County. 30% whole cluster, aged in stainless steel. Very light red, almost Pinot-like. The nose is fresh, yet also distinctly earthy; sous-bois beneath fraises des bois. Flavors in fine balance around sneaky acidity. Lovely texture from the stems, subtle spice, as well. Finish lasts and lasts. 750 cases produced.

Edmunds St. John:
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.

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.

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.
