Locations F1

Locations-F1Dave Phinney continues his Location series with F1.  The F is for France.  He has found new roots to put down and has done so with great success.  F1 is a marriage of Grenache from the Roussillon, Syrah from the Rhone, and the main red varietals from Bordeaux.  The nose is richly dark with plum, black cherry, blueberry and a touch of pepper.  The palate has nice weight with rich dark fruit flavors and a long finish.  There’s just enough tannin to give the wine backbone and prevent it from tasting sappy.
