Another blazing-hot Phinney Zin blend that obliterates the varietals involved yet delivers some guilty pleasure... a tad pricey for this level of quality though... you can get a fairly similar experience with his entry-level stuff and after a glass or two of 16% flamethrowers any difference will vanish entirely ;)

Decent cheapie Cab Franc by somm Richard Betts... Marin Whole Foods wine buyer liked it so it's 5 bucks off... — 4 years ago
The budget Ladera is pretty lovely in 13, with the bramble, black cherry and vanilla aspects, nice texture and good acids... a pretty good deal in the mid 30s too... — 4 years ago
