After eight years of taking a break from Zinfandel, the very first wine he produced and the commercial start of Orin Swift, Dave Phinney is back at it. This passion project give us eight bottles, each with unique packaging, that we very quickly fell in love with. Only released to four accounts in Montana this is a very special, and very limited wine.
Dark garnet with a lucid rim, the wine exhibits aromas of briar fruit, ripe blackberry and dark plum with a tinge of minerality and charred meat. Brawny on the entry, it has an equally big mid-palate with complex flavors of ripe brambly fruit, a touch of earth and notes of espresso bean. Still massive through to the finish with soft drying tannins, the unique varietal character- istics of the blend clearly reveal themselves over time.
