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.
Talk less, smile more. Don't let them know what you're against or what you're for.
