Edmunds St. John Rocks and Gravel Dry Creek Valley 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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.

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
