Edmunds St. John Parmalee Hill Vineyard Syrah 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

The nose is a touch disjointed with rocky tones and a rubbery edge to the big, earthy blackberry and game fruit tones with lovely smoky overtones. In the mouth his has pure mineral toned, bitter cocoa tinged blackberry fruit that unfurls over the palate. Still an infant this is rich yet simple but with such a nice earthy long finish, full of plummy fruit accented with suggestions of coffee and gravel. This still needs time in the cellar. 92pts

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.
