Kim brought the following wine back from her sojourn in San Diego a few weeks ago:
2004 Edmunds St. John El Dorado County Gamay Noir Bone-Jolly Witters Vineyard, approx. $17, 13.1% alc.: Ruby garnet in color, with solid Gamay character, featuring flavors and aromas reminiscent of cherries and mulberries, shaded with very subtle earth and underbrush. Medium full bodied and slightly tart in the mouth, with good concentration, structure and length, and while not that complex, what’s here is quite enjoyable for this taster. With only 185 cases made, I doubt that we’ll see much more of this here in Michigan, unless someone else packs a few away in their carry-on luggage.
