WTN: This Gravel Rocks! (2009 ESJ)

2009 Edmunds St. John Rocks and Gravel - USA, California (10/17/2013)
The 2009 Rocks & Gravel is evolving slowly, with only moderate change since my last note 3 years ago. It has lost a bit of its youthful brashness, gaining harmony and an interesting roundness/richness on the mid-palate. There's a notable meatiness, and fine length. I will continue to hold this, only rarely checking in. The Diam closure seems to be doing fine.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
