An inky, purple color tone is evident suggesting power and finesse. Exotic aromas of plum, cassis, lavender, and hint of garrigue proudly welcome the tasting. With a fervent entry, dark fruits are immediately present followed by persuasive flavors of raspberry compote, boysenberry, fresh fig, and a tinge of bitter chocolate. Sweet and polished tannins glide effortlessly to the finish with freshness and vivacity.
Robert Parker: “Dave Phinney, better known for his winery called Orin Swift, is one of the more creative young minds in all of the world’s winedom. He is doing things that are far beyond his modest age and deserves to be commended for the brilliant individuality/singularity of all of his efforts." And also from Robert Parker: "As of now, Dave Phinney might be my “value winemaker of the year” candidate. If there are better wines for under $20 a bottle in the world today, please share that information with the Wine Advocate."
