Yikes. The opposite end of the grenache spectrum I care to visit. An abomination.

Dave Phinney’s wines are a trip. Every one just attacks the palate and doesn’t let up. This is on the lighter side for him but still is huge, sizzling on the palate. Starting to get a dried fruit character.

I was looking forward to this & I was underwhelmed. Far more bitter & earthier than I expected. Just not the wine for me.

Oak and acidity, bright with smoked cherries. Too sharp for me.

Quite simply, this is unpleasant and not drinkable. Decanting and time did it no favors, either.

Hmmm...
There is something nice behind the acid. But it's pretty bitter, finish pretty bad too.
