Dave Phinney's/Orin Swift's Department 66 2014 Others
OTHERS is the new release from Dave Phinney's winery and vineyards in Maury, France. When he sold Orin Swift to the Gallo's last fall, he spun off his French property, Department 66, into a separate company and kept ownership. The wine has a ruby, purple opaque hue with aromas of licorice, spring flowers, campfire, toast and sweet vanilla. On the palette there are abundant flavors of blackberry, wild berry, pepper and spice. Intense and concentrated with a persistent finish, the wine is ready to drink now and enjoy over the next 5 years. A blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Carignan.
