Locations by Dave Phinney F5 Rose | France

100% Grenache from the South of France sourced from vineyard blocks that cling to granite and schist slopes; these 50-year-old dry farmed vines produce very low yields of perfectly concentrated fruit. We are continually striving to maintain traditions while using our personal experiences to improve our craft each vintage. Fermented at very cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks; this wine displays both a delicacy and vibrancy characteristic to the maritime influences of the Mediterranean Sea. In the glass, an appearance of Himalayan salt opens with a nose of gardenias and early harvested stone fruit. A fresh entry leads to a honeysuckle mousse with hints of peaches and cantaloupe encompassing a dry minerality. The finish is memorable with a slight brininess reminiscent of the Himalayan sea salt hue. | Winemaker's Notes

2012 Longtable The Gathering | Mount Veeder Napa Valley California RED

"...life is at its best together...spent with family and friends...with great food and wine. There's always space for one more chair, another glass to be found somewhere, room for one more bite, a moment for a joke or a story or a song, time for a walk arm-in-arm...." The Longtable Life
We find this philosophy wrapped up in The Gathering as a luscious and full fruited core of marionberry and pie fruits creates an inviting entry. The midpalate deepens with black olive, star anise and wild game. Striking a balance between fruit & savory makes for a winning Rhone varietal blend {Syrah, Grenache, Counoise, & Mourvedre} that is very representative of it's California conception. Only 105 cases of this beauty were produced and upon tasting the work of winemaker Charles Thomas, we were hooked.
2013 Darioush Caravan Cabernet Sauvignon | Napa Valley California RED

Caravan shares the pedigree of Darioush Signature wines, but displays more ripe, saturated fruit with an elegantly textured finish. Caravan is anchored by Cabernet Sauvignon with lesser amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec added for depth and complexity of flavor. Round, supple and sleek - all are classic traits of Caravan Cabernet Sauvignon and the exemplary 2013 vintage is no exception. The wine opens with decadent top notes of chocolate coated red cherries, fig and black currants, lent by a significant blend of Merlot. The palate showcases ripe raspberry, blackberry and plum, with firm tannins and hints of spice including cinnamon, vanilla and cherry liqueur. | Darioush
