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.

Nicely open on the palate which starts off in a very mineral vein picking up a bit of yellow melon flavor along with hints of ollen and heather. Theres a little... Read More

  • I'm disappointed no one mentioned Amity, down at the southern end of the Valley.  Myron Redford is a pioneer and quite a character.  Even if he's not around (I think he probably isn't around as much as he once was), his spirit permeates the place.  The tasting room is a part of the barn that houses the winery, outside the part with temperature c...

  • Hi! I've been quite busy with travel for work so I've been off the radar a bit. I unexpectedly had a few days free so I took a last minute trip to Portland for a few days - I'm there now. Tomorrow we were planning on driving out of town to do some wine tasting, etc....probably McMinnville. I was too busy and tired to really make any plans for th... Read More

  • Edmunds St. John Syrah Sonoma County 1988


    The nose showed dried cherry, vegetal stems, old cinnamon stick, moss, and hints of old library book. It was ripe and mature at the same time. On the palate, it was soft and velvety with fading blackberry and prunes. The finish was staying and featured sweet blackberry fruit and citrus rinds. Read More

    Hints of raisin, honey, anise and tobacco on the nose. Earth and fruit on the palate, subtle tannins. Definitely wanted food, but not without charms on its own. Read More

  • Edmunds St. John Syrah Sonoma County 1988


    Tobacco, caper and a little funk and earth here with late arriving tea and lilac, some peppery spice as well. Very Northern Rhone. Little bottle sweetness, fully resolved tannins, a little lean and still has fine red fruit. Fruit is low intensity, but theres plenty of wild cherry and red currant going on. This really has a sense of delicacy and ... Read More
