The Non-Vintage Locations F-2 French Red Wine is all from the 2012 vintage and is a blend of Grenache from the Roussillon, Syrah from the Rhone Valley and assorted Bordeaux varieties. It was fermented in large oak vats and aged in barrel for ten months prior to bottling. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by a big, sweet kiss of licorice, black currants and camphor. Deep, full-bodied and ripe (but not over-ripe), it possesses good freshness, vibrancy and delineation as well as a juicy, in-your-face style. These wines are all meant to be drunk upon release, but enough stuffing is present that they should evolve for 4-5 years. "

Establishing a "rapport" with our growers in France is something we take very seriously. Frequent visits to Bordeaux, The Rhone, and The Roussillon are mandatory so we can continue to improve Locations and expand our vineyard network. Although it can be demanding and exhaustive at times, it's a pursuit that we enjoy and constantly learn from. Following the inaugural release of F1, we determined that an expanded barrel program with the addition of isolated, old vine vineyards could make the wine even better. Searching for a true representation of site and appellation was paramount and resulted in some extraordinary finds. The yields were smaller and the concentration was higher, which in turn provided us with optimum blending components for this second release.

A heavy purple hue envelops the glass with a tinge of ruby on the band. The nose reveals compelling, perfumed aromas of ripe cherry, kirsch, blackberry preserve, lavender, and subtle spice notes. Spirited upon entry, the palate is treated to persuasive and distinctive flavors of strawberry compote, crushed plum, and mocha. The silky mouthfeel gives way to a pleasing middle with notes of black tea, roasted fig, and juicy acidity. Finishing with purpose, dark fruits linger effortlessly with an attractive mineral tone.
