Robert Parker said "As of now, Dave Phinney might be my “value winemaker of the year” candidate... If there are better wines for under $20 a bottle in the world today, please share that information with The Wine Advocate.

Dave Phinney of Orin Swift Fame has taken the wine world by storm. 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.

Todays wine the Orin Swift, Locations E Red has received 93pts by Parker and can be had for $14.99 per. Parke flipped for this Spanish blend saying "Majestic, soaring black fruit aromas intermixed with forest floor, white flowers and kirsch emerge from this full-bodied, opulent, voluptuously textured red along with stunning richness and depth." The wine is a blend of Spain’s leading red wine regions focusing on Priorat, Jumilla, Toro, Rioja, and Ribera del Duero. Specific vineyard sites are chosen for super concentrated fruit from old vines with low yields with a judicious oak program that rounds out and balances the wine. This is a great buy by the case, pop and pour no-brainer.

"If you judge wines on how they taste and the degree of pleasure they offer, they are all incredible efforts. The three new cuvees I tasted are among the finest wine values one could hope to find. Moreover, there are 50,000 cases of each, no easy feat given the grapes Phinney has accessed and the quality he has turned out. As of now, Dave Phinney might be my “value winemaker of the year” candidate. P.S. It’s too expensive for this report, but I am including it as a homage to what Dave Phinney has achieved. If there are better wines for under $20 a bottle in the world today, please share that information with The Wine Advocate. "

Wanamaker’s Notes: An alluring cast of blooming crimson and deep red shades are immediately present in the glass. Complementing the appearance is an impressive intensity on the nose with elevated dark cherry and exotic spice notes. The entry is rich with youthful berry compote, floral, and plum flavors, complimented with bright acidity. The finish is expansive and pleasing with a persistent mocha tinge and silky tannins.
