2016 ORIN SWIFT MANNEQUIN CHARDONNAY 750ML
2016 ORIN SWIFT MANNEQUIN CHARDONNAY 750ML
Bottle Price $31.99

THESE WILL SELL OUT FAST. HUGE SCORING ORIN SWIFT CALIFORNIA CHARDONNAY

The wines of Orin Swift come to us from the genius of David Phinney. Phinney is undoubtedly one of the great young creative minds in all of wine. Many of you will know him from the hugely successful wine Orin Swift The Prisoner. Phinney is not only making some of the finest in California but is also making wine all over the world with huge success. The man has the Midas touch when it comes to blending wine and the guy is fanatical when it comes to quality declassifying vintage after vintage if he is not happy. He makes big, rich, hedonistic style reds of the highest order. I have been touting the greatness of the 2013 vintage in Napa. It is a truly great vintage of our time getting 98pts by Parker the highest rating he has ever given a vintage and all the experts agree. Today I have Phinney's spectacular 2016 Orin Swift Mannequin Chardonnay that got a monster 96pts by Parker and is by far the highest scoring California white in ages by Parker. The wine is sourced from very carefully selected site from all over Northern California. Phinney just destroyed it in 2016 with this wine. The wine is 76% Chardonnay with small amounts of white Rhone varietals to add even more weight and richness to this white. If you love rich, round Cali Chard this wine will blow you away and matched with the price, an absolute run-away buy.

96pts Parker

Parker, “The 2016 Proprietary White Mannequin, which draws fruit from diverse regions of Northern California such as the Carneros Basin and the Sonoma Coast, is actually a blend of 76% Chardonnay, 8% Viognier, 6% Marsanne, 5% Grenache Blanc, 3% Muscat and 2% Roussanne. This is amazing wine, a gorgeous, full-throttle, honeyed wine with a light-gold color, oodles of tropical fruits including pineapple and mango, rose petal and floral notes, and beautifully integrated oak (aged in 40% new French oak on its lees for 11 months). It is a magnificent, full-throttle, exuberant dry white to drink over the next 3-4 years.
Dave Phinney, better known for his winery called Orin Swift, is one of the more creative young minds in all of the world’s winedom. He is doing things that are far beyond his modest age and deserves to be commended for the brilliant individuality/singularity of all of his efforts.”

Dazzling straw-gold in color, the wine serves up superrich aromas of ripe pineapple, vanilla bean, raw coconut, and honeyed lemon. The entry is supremely lush with complex flavors of roasted fig, apricot, green apple, and orchard fruit. Further, the wine’s energetic profile leads to stunning mineral notes, flint, exotic spice, and lemongrass framed in roasted marshmallow. The abundant richness remains through the finish with clarity and length, while supported with a youthful brightness.

This is a blend of garnacha and carinena from those ancient vines, blended with merlot, syrah and cabernet. It stands firm with the strength of a Praetorian guard, presenting the structure of the finest Priorat. It is grand and expansive, packed with red fruit flavors together with spice and herbal notes. The schisty touch on the finish adds complexity and charm. Six years from the vintage, this wine is still in its youth, needing at least another five years to fully develop.

Totally Under-Valued Napa Cab. From The Great 2012 Napa Cab Vintage, 96pt Parker As A Vintage.

Barrelhead Wine Company is a tiny winery - a collaboration between Chris Corley (winemaker at his family winery Monticello Vineyards which he runs with his two brothers), and his wife Jules Melange, who started at Mondavi/Opus fifteen years ago in vineyard research and went on to work as a viticulturist for Williams Selyem, Hourglass Vineyards, and many other prestigious vineyards in Napa and Sonoma.

The 2012 Barrelhead Cabernet Sauvignon is a single vineyard, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the family’s Heinemann Mountain Vineyard, up on Spring Mountain, in the Napa Valley. The wine is Deep ruby purple hue, beautiful aromas of crushed dark fruits - cassis and blackberry - are matched by sandalwood and vanilla oak tones. On the palate is has loads of plush 2012 Cabernet fruit - ripe, mouth filling and layered, with sweetly concentrated crushed dark fruits, ripe supple tannins, stony Spring Mountain mineral notes underneath, and complex mocha and oak nuances that linger into the wine's long finish. Upfront and forward enough to enjoy right now, this will also drink great for up to a decade or more.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature has a very deep garnet-purple color and opens with wonderfully expressive notes of warm cassis, baked plums, black raspberries and kirsch with suggestions of underbrush, lilacs and chocolate box. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals layers of red and black berries with stunning freshness and an approachable, grainy texture, finishing long and earthy. Parker
Deep, rich and beautifully structured, this is a classic expression of hillside Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, offering alluring aromas of blackberry, cassis, and chocolate, along with hints of espresso, anise and fragrant herbs. On the palate, creamy oak and concentrated berry and black cherry flavors are underscored by velvety tannins and subtle notes of cola, clove, and black licorice. Winemaker
