Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

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!

Full bodied and very intense for a Grenache. Cherry, oak, fig, cinnamon and other spices. Better after opened up for an hour.

Had at a book club. As a blend I thought there might be some Zinfandel due to the pepper elements. Also a modest chalk flavor in the palate

Smoked raspberry, blueberry, cherry pie, some chocolate, & boysenberry on both the nose & palate. Flaccid middle, but a tannic, leathery finish. Thin bodied. Medium-plus acidity. ...RIP Rick May.
