“Disciples” is Dave Phinney’s effort to replicate the old-vine magic of Dr. Crane’s site with neighboring parcels in Rutherford and St. Helena, such as Morisoli Vineyard and Milat Vineyard. “A blend of 76% Zinfandel, 13% Charbono, 6% Grenache and 5% Petite Sirah, the 2016 Disciples is medium to deep garnet-purple in color with gorgeous notions of hoisin, Black Forest cake, prunes and potpourri with hints of black pepper, unsmoked cigars and cloves. Full-bodied, rich, opulent and oh-so-spicy, it fills the palate with decadent fruit and a plush texture, finishing with a lively lift.” Fabulous red wine, any way you slice it!
