Edmunds St. John Syrah San Luis Obispo County Bassetti Vineyard 2001

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Hermitage-like with its smoky, exotic, complex, bacon fat, blackberry, and currant flavors is the medium to full-bodied, deep, rich, well-delineated 2001 Syrah Bassetti Vineyard. This impressive effort should be drunk over the next 7-8 years. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2001 Edmunds St John Syrah Bassetti Vineyard 750ml

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.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
