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 Syrah Fenaughty 2011


    Deep smoke tinged jammy black fruit that is not sweet fills the glass along with framing notes of wild thyme, truffle, mossy rocks, and some lovely smoked chili accents. Supple in the mouth with fine acids keeping this fresh even though this packs in a lot of youthful fruit and has a touch of an inky consistency on the palate. With a lovely base... Read More

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 theres a little ... Read More

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...
