Editorial Reviews for Edmunds St. John Rocks and Gravel Dry Creek Valley
A blend of 55% Grenache, 27% Syrah, 18% Mourvedre grown in the Unti vineyard. Smoky and stemmy on the nose with aromas of african violet, crushed rocks, a little ink, ash, and wild herbs. Big and, almost sweet entry, this shows off lots of fine tannins and bright acids in the mouth supporting rich fresh fruit flavors. At first there’s a little red apple skin note followed by crushed raspberry, icy white pepper accents, a little cherry skin and blackberry on the backend which is very aromatic and long, with floral highlights. Incredibly flavorful but also quite structured. This is good already but promises to improve with additional ageing. 89pts
55% Grenache, 27% Syrah, 18% Mourvèdre. Lovely fresh and savory mineral and fruit-tinged aromas. Medium-weight flavors include raspberry and smoke; silky textured with fine delineation and nerve, and nice length. Delicious now, or over the next five years.
