We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The wine has a vibrant ruby color with a scarlet band on the rim. The aromas take a minute to awaken, and then take off into a blend of ripe boysenberry, stone fruit, warm spice, and a hint of oak. A rich entry leads to a robust and savory mid-palate that is intense and concentrated with a persistent finish of ripe, soft tannins. Extremely well-balanced with proper weight and structure, the wine is ready to drink now.

Wine AdvocateEven better is the Locations E-1 (2011) from Spain. Composed of Grenache from Priorat, Rioja and Toro, Tempranillo from Rioja, and Carignan from Ribera del Duero and Carinyena, it was fermented in oak and aged ten months prior to release. A sensational effort, it reveals some toasty oak in the nose, but blackberry and black currant fruit as well as hints of licorice, truffles and spice box are also present in this full-bodied, ripe, deep, supple, velvety-textured, elegant, opulent, voluptuous, lusty red. If Dave Phinney can continue to achieve such high quality with his future cuvees, and keep such a high production level consistent, he has a major winner on his hands.
