Opinion: I wouldn't buy this again.
Other Comments: This is a great $8 bottle. Sadly, it cost $17.99. I bought it mainly because Dave Phinney's name was listed as a collaborator with Joel Gott (from whom I have a totally ordinary 2012 Zinfandel I will review later). I greatly enjoy Phinney's efforts with Orin Swift's quirky Locations label and thought this would be in the same ballpark. Nope. Locations is major league, but this this struggles, but doesn't quite achieve AA ball. Insipid...a bland melange of various organoleptic touchpoints with no focus.I can't see buying it again.
