Thanksgiving Perfected Set Includes:
2x 2014 Orin Swift Papillon Red Wine
The 2014 Orin Swift Papillon earned 94 points from Robert Parker, who called it a “full-bodied, unctuously textured, deep, rich pure wine to drink over the next 10-15+ years.” Phinney — the founder and winemaker of Orin Swift and the original creator of “The Prisoner” — is one of the great winemaking talents of our time. Parker has raved of Phinney’s talents, saying, “Orin Swift is the brainchild of a brilliant young man by the name of Dave Phinney. His Midas touch with grapes from seemingly anywhere in the world, is unusual, but the brilliance of the wines, his creativeness and unparalleled blending talents have built an incredible portfolio right out of the gate.” We agree with Parker who goes on to say, “Readers looking for personality filled wines of considerable character and complexity need to check out the Orin Swift offerings.” Phinney remains entirely hands on at Orin Swift, making these wines from beginning to end and on a daily basis. In the words of the venerable Parker: “If you are like me and believe that a wine is to be judged on just how delicious it is, you will be as impressed as I have been with the Orin Swift products.” Do not miss out on this one.
2x 2014 Domaine de La Cote Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills
Domaine de la Côte is perhaps California’s most talked about fine Pinot Noir, and the buzz is only getting louder with the release of this 2014 masterpiece. Decanter pinned on 97 points naming it their top Californian Pinot Noir of the 2014 vintage. “Outstanding,” says Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate of La Côte. “A fascinating young winery to follow,” says Vinous’ Antonio Galloni. The superstar duo at the helm — Rajat Parr, author, sommelier and one of America’s most famous vignerons, and Sashi Moorman, the ingenious winemaker at Stolpman Vineyards — have mesmerized wine directors in Michelin-Starred restaurants throughout America.
2x Langlois-Chateau Crémant de Loire Brut
When a revered Champagne house like Bollinger heads to the Loire Valley to produce a sparkling wine to Champagne standards — without Champagne’s hefty price tag — the result is a gem like Langlois-Château’s Crémant de Loire Brut. Even though the Bollinger family isn’t beholden to following the “méthode champenoise” tradition with this label, they choose to deploy the technique to a melange of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Franc anyway. The result is a brilliant bubbly for the masses.
