WILL SELL OUT FAST. HUGE SCORING ORIN SWIFT CALIFORNIA CHARDONNAY
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 2013
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 2013 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
“The 2013 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.

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.

at his family winery Monticello Vineyards which he runs with his two brothers),

Signature Cabernet Sauvignon has been Chappellet's flagship wine for more than
three decades. It is a benchmark for the long-lived hillside wines of the Napa
Valley; full of structure and aging potential, yet seductively forward in its
varietal character. The dry, rocky soils of Pritchard Hill produce small,
intensely flavorful grapes. Crop thinning allows for full, even ripening and
further elevates flavor complexity.
