Over-the-top, but I think that was essentially the point.

Big dark berries, but dry, high tannins. Great blend, needs a minute to open up

This 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is full-bodied and a wonderful accompaniment to a hearty meal. Loved it, but not nearly as much as my fave Orin Swift wine... Papillon!

Luscious! Young with lots of ripe fruit, some oak, leathery, good finish, easy to drink.

Ripe but balanced. A little too much char from whatever was used to add oak flavor stands out a bit too much.

This style of wine just does not do it for me anymore. Overly extracted and chewy, many better bottles at 1/2 this price

2012 vintage. A little too young for optimal enjoyment but always love everything made by Dave Phinney.
