1995 Edmunds St. John "Les Cotes Sauvages," California (About $20)

November 18, 1998|S. IRENE VIRBILA

With his 1995 Les Cotes Sauvages ("The Wild Hills"), Steve Edmonds has created a California wine that honors the tradition of the southern Rhone's big red wines. It's a blend of Grenache and Syrah from hillside vineyards in Mendocino and Sonoma County, along with some Mourvedre from an old planting in the Mayacamas hills of Napa Valley. Deep purple-red and inky, it is a rustic full-bodied wine with a taste of mulberries and dark plums.

Everything about it tells me this would be a great turkey wine.
