Slander California Pinot Noir 2017

Had this about a year ago. A big fan of David Swift Phinney wines. In 1998 David founded Orin Swift Cellars; Orin is his father’s middle name and Swift is his mother’s maiden name. Aged 10 mos in French oak, 30% new. Ruby with complex aromas of fresh fruits, floral and spice. On the palate flavors of raspberry and cherry with cacao and hints of pepper spice. Rich full tannins, long ending with fruit, well balanced with spice and acidity. Nice! — 17 days ago

Mercury Head Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Leather and oak nose. Purple, bold, dry, mild tannins. Plums with chocolate and coffee beans. Over 2 years since my last bottle, aging very well. — a month ago

D 66 Carignan Blend

Gobs of great fruit. Hot at open, then balanced after one hour. Dark flavor profile. Tanins are a little rough, but still very beautiful and enjoyable. — 15 days ago

Eight Years In The Desert Red Wine

I enjoyed this a lot. To me it was a lot better than the 2017 vintage . More rounded but the 2017 was still great , this was just a tad better — 2 days ago

Machete Napa Valley Red Blend 2016

Insane concentration and richness. Completely over the top.
It’s big, it’s large, it’s tasty and impressive. But it lacks some complexity and layers.

Abstract California Grenache Blend 2018

History dates back to 1995 when on a lark, David Swift Phinney took a friend up on an offer & went to Florence, Italy to spend a semester “studying”. During that time, he was introduced to wine, how it was made, & got hooked. A Grenache, Syrah & Petite Sirah blend. Aromas of fresh ripe red fruits with floral & spice. On the palate flavors of cherry & raspberry with cacao & espresso notes on sweet savory soft tannins, well balanced, lingering finish ending with fruit & toasty oak. Nice! Consistent Quality! — a month ago
