A continuation of an original concept to seek out particular vineyards and make an eclectic blend, we have discovered new sites to advance our original purpose. Super concentrated fruit from old vines with low yields are accented with a judicious oak program for a balanced and distinctive wine.
"If you judge wines on how they taste and the degree of pleasure they offer, they are all incredible efforts. The three new cuvees I tasted are among the finest wine values one could hope to find. Moreover, there are 50,000 cases of each, no easy feat given the grapes Phinney has accessed and the quality he has turned out. As of now, Dave Phinney might be my “value winemaker of the year” candidate. P.S. It’s too expensive for this report, but I am including it as an hommage to what Dave Phinney has achieved. If there are better wines for under $20 a bottle in the world today, please share that information with The Wine Advocate. "
