R.H. Phillips Winery, nestled in the Dunnigan Hills northwest of of Sacremento, was founded in 1983 by brothers Karl and John Giguiere along with John’s wife Lane. Twenty-eight years later the Giguiere’s continue to produce quality wine with the help of winemakers Blake Kuhn and Owen Smith. Known for their Toasted Head brand wines, the winery sits on 1,700 acres and is a favorite site for weddings and other special events.
One of my favorite wines. Medium bodied, fruity with just enough spice to make it a perfect glass for cool fall evenings. It has a unique flavor that I haven't found in any other wine.
Wonderful nose for a $10 wine. Taste is not as good as the nose ... not too subtle hints of vanilla taffy. Would be a great wine by the glass at a restaurant, but a whole bottle of all this vanilla is a bit much for me.
