• Edmunds St. John 2016 El Jaleo Red Blend

This blend comes from the Shaker Ridge vineyard site in Amador Co. This has light cherry, some spice and light mineral with pepper spice edge. It has a medium body, with medium acid, and finishes with pepper and light cherry. D&M Tasting Notes

34% Grenache, 26% Tempranillo, 23% Mourvedre, 17% Graciano

Dark, ruby-red color. Fresh, spirited, earthy nose of considerable complexity. Very focused flavors on the palate. Lovely, supple texture, and very good length to the finish. Should be quite something in three or four more years, and likely to be good for many years after

I’ve always felt there is a special magic at work in the blended red wines of Southern Europe, some almost mystical affinity that defies explanation. The most compelling wines of the Southern Rhone are great examples; none of the component varietal wines, on its own, can measure up to the astonishing result when they are blended, judiciously.
