via Instagram Stopped by our very favorite wine shop @worldclasswinesoregon and Eric introduced us to the new 2014 ‘Others’ from Dave Phinney’s operation in France. This D66-sequel early drinker comes from stressed hillside fruit grown in the foothills of the Pyrénées Orientales and displays an intense, opaque ruby-purple color. Aromas of blackberry fruit, crushed flower with notes of toasted vanilla bean and licorice. Rich, concentrated dark berry fruit flavors, peppery spices on the palate. Solid backbone and chewy tannins, finishes strong. A very approachable Grenache, Syrah, Carignan blend.
