Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) Inky blue-purple in complexion, the wine bursts with a perfume of dark fruit, sage, acacia flowers, kirsch, and a hint of California chaparral. Voluptuous in texture, the wine is remarkably fresh on the palate with ripe blackberry, mulberry, roasted plum, black tea, and bitter chocolate. A sweet and soft tannin profile rounds out the finish, which lingers elegantly.

    very juicy and fluid, Grenache heavy, blackberries and ash. The second release of this Grenache-based blend from Dave Phinney, the creator of the popular, critically acclaimed Zin-based blend, the Prisoner. Using fruit from Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino counties, mostly from hillside vineyards, with Petite Sirah and Syrah supporting the juicy Grenache fruit. Think cherries, strawberries and crushed blackberries with mouthcoating tannins and balancing acidity.
