  • More like Layer Cake. With Locations it's Dave Phinney, with Layer Cake it's Jayson Woodbridge. They go out to the vineyards and they'll make some decisions on picking, etc. If they don't like what they get that year, they may not make the wine - there was no Layer Cake Shiraz in 2007 for example  Whether they actually pull every lever and clean...

  • Can anyone help me figure out the difference between the Dave Phinney (Orin Swift) Locations F1, F2 and F3 wines. I tried one that was listed as a 2011 vintage. I did not see the bottle and don't know which to look for. Do the 1, 2 and 3 correspond to vintage? Any clarification is appreciated.  Read More

  • John Alan Red Blend Paso Robles Malcontent 2006


    Great wine. I've had the 2007 vintage when it was still very young. This is a very new-world, fruit-forward blend that really explodes with flavor. It finishes well too, doesn't decelerate as it goes down. Looking forward to picking up another bottle of this one again. Read More

  • John Alan Viognier Paso Robles 2006


    this is a wonderful, soft, silky viognier--a great example of the lusciousness of a viognier. my disclaimer--i'm not good at describing wine. the fruit flavors shown in the tag are pretty accurate. my absolute favorite in my short winey life! Read More

  • John Alan Red Blend Paso Robles Malcontent 2006


    this is the best of the John Alan family. we love the strong fruity tones. have i mentioned i'm not good at describing wine? it just made a big impression on us. the 2007 vintage isn't quite as good. i'm hoping the '08 or '09 will recapture the greatness of the 2006, since you can't get teh 2006 anymore.

  • John Alan Red Bordeaux Blend Paso Robles Meritage 2005


    I really love this wine. It has smooth blend that's a perfect balance of acidity and tannins. I find this red blend pairs well with southwestern dishes as well. Read More
