2017 Edmunds St. John «Bone-Jolly» Rosé
Region: USA, California
Grape Variety: Gamay
Light, dry rosé | Thanksgiving turkey, natch
Perennially acclaimed as one of the best domestic rosés in the US by the likes of Eric Asimov, we find little reason for dissent in the 2016 rendition. It's fruity in a Gamay-esque fashion (the name is a playful take on the Beaujolais region of France, which is the spiritual home of the Gamay grape), minerally as befitting the granite bedrock, and deceptively light on its feet as all of Steve's wines are. Pretty perfect, in fact.
