Smokey plummy nose. Rosey, light-bodied oaky and cheese-philic. Mouth-drying stringency on the finish. Like the E5, I must revisit this Phinney delight in crystal, step it up from this shit hotel water vase. Yet it still uplifts a long day of work on the road.

Locations from Orin Swift. Italian blend, I get Nebiolo, Sangiovese, possibly Amarone. Opened up wonderfully! Good food pairing wine!

Nice wine. Strong fruit after it opens up. A little disappointing compared to their other wines. I was hoping for a bigger, more robust Italian red.

Inky dark and displaying dark flavors on the palate, probably from the Negro Amaro that is blended into it. I like this one the best of the Location Series, but still I don't like it all that much.

Wow, that tannin structure. Serious fruit. Powerhouse. Not Italian but good.
