Geographic diversity is what Locations – CA is all about. Provided with a wide assortment of microclimates and soil profiles to exploit, it can be a winemaker’s dream. With a goal in mind to create a blend that showcases the best of the Golden State, Phinney navigated the famed appellations of Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, and the Sierra Foothills for prized fruit. Once secured, they were able to apply some creativity to the blending components to ultimately settle on a wine worthy of Locations. Inspired by their international projects, the same philosophy is applied to this third release. Locations CA is a blend of Petite Sirah, Barbera, Tempranillo, Syrah, and Grenache. “If you like big, rich reds with lots of dried-fruit and bark character, then this is for you. Full body. Chewy tannins. More like a dry port, but I like its historical sensibility. A blend of petite sirah, barbera, tempranillo, syrah, and grenache.”–90pts James Suckling.
