They had a vision of creating their own unique premium wine label - John’s Blend was the result. First vintaged in 1974, the Cabernet Sauvignon was created under this new label. John’s Blend was an instant success when it was released in 1977. The then youthful John had already worked with some of the greats of Australian wine, including John Vickery and starting work with Wolf Blass after graduating from the Oenology course in 1970. John’s Blend developed side-by-side with numerous Wine Show honours and John’s own prominent role in Wolf Blass Wines as the senior red winemaker. The result was hardly surprising; for John’s part in the story of Wolf Blass Wines, resulted in winning an unrivalled four of the prestigious Jimmy Watson Trophies for Australia’s top red wine 1974, 1975, 1976, and 1999. Also winning eleven Montgomery Trophies for the finest red wines at the Royal Adelaide Wine Show, to name just a few of the awards.

    Forum post in the topic Locations F1 vs F2 vs F3

  • 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

  • Thanks for the mention Outthere! Greatly appreciated.Grenache in the US is certainly on the rise at this time. One must remember that before the mid 1990's, our plant materials were not that good - generally bigger cluster, bigger berry clones that one was able to crop heavily in order to make simple, fruity wines from.That changed with Tablas C...

  • On and off with differing frequency mention is made on these boards of garnacha as a choice for certain palates, and in certain contexts.

Where is good, who makes the goo... Read More
