Edmunds St. John Syrah "Cuvee Fairbairn" Mendocino County 2008

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

One of the first California wineries to work completely biodynamic, this syrah comes from one of their warmer vineyard sites creating a supple, dark fruited red that ends with a dancing acidity. They use only neutral barrels over 10 years old and they don’t filter so watch out for sediment

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.
