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.

Edmunds St. John on Snooth

  • This week’s installment of "stuffing your cellar on a Happy Meal budget" takes a look at grapes instead of regions. While both of our chosen grapes, Grenache and Syrah, excel in France's Rhone Valley, they also have found a happy home in many other regions. In Grenache's case, that includes (not surprisingly) its Spanish homeland. Syrah, on the... Read More

  • So, we certainly had some spirited responses to our last email about some of the greatest value wines for getting your drunk on. Did I really just say that? I think I did! It should have come as no surprise to anyone that my go-to wines tend to be Italian, but truth is there’s a world of great wine out there, and I indulge with wines from all ov... Read More

  • Edmunds St. John Parmalee Hill Vineyard Syrah 2005


    The nose is a touch disjointed with rocky tones and a rubbery edge to the big, earthy blackberry and game fruit tones with lovely smoky overtones. In the mouth his has pure mineral toned, bitter cocoa tinged blackberry fruit that unfurls over the palate. Still an infant this is rich yet simple but with such a nice earthy long finish, full of pl... Read More

  • Edmunds St. John Red Rhone Blend California Rocks and Gravel 2005


    A piercing nose of blueberry and black raspberry candy, soil, mineral, slate, pressed flowers/violet, a slight citrus peel tone, very fresh nose with an energetic fruity/savory synergy. Really delightful to smell. Fairly velvety right up front then brightening somewhat with a strong acidic push that is held in check by the ripe balanced fruit. ... Read More

    Strawberries and a slight meatiness on the nose. The wine is crisp and robust enough to stand up to a gammon ham. finishes on sour raspberries. Its a nice, fruity, summer wine. Read More

    Wine review by Philip

  • I've gotten a few questions from both consumers and producer about this GTi since Grenache is one of the world's greatest blending grapes. Well rest assured that we are equal opportunity imbibers here at Snooth and are interested in any wine that gives you your Grenache fix! To start us off allow me to run straight for the southern Rhone and wri... Read More

  • We concluded our Cabernet GTi this past Friday with a small gathering of the faithful. Admittedly scheduling, or rather rescheduling, this PTP tasting for a Friday caused conflict with many attendees calendars but the show must go on so with sporadic assistance from some of my fellow Snooth employees we managed to slog through a reduced roster o...
