1a

In the world of wine there are compelling LOCATIONS that exist where soil, climate and vines interact to produce grapes that uniquely express their LOCATIONS through wine. Our love of wine recognizes the nuances of time and place that combine and interact to represent LOCATIONS. These LOCATIONS exist individually within appellations of the new and old world, but are seldom combined across appellation, in the art of blending due to laws and restrictions that make it near impossible to express true winemaking freedom.

In Champagne, across appellation blending is a time honored and respected tradition - a tried and true method for producing a premium and consistent wine that represents the best aspects of the Champagne region. Why can't this concept be taken wider - across country? Why do the rules not allow this? Why are these rules accepted?

2a

But what if it could be done. What if one could blend across all of the major appellations, to produce a wine that represented a country of origin? What if one could do this across all of the major wine producing regions of the world. What if there were no rules? What if one had complete freedom to express whatever one believed.

Could it be done?

The question is - do you break the rules, and thousands of years of history and tradition, in pursuit of expressing freedom?

WINEMAKER DAVE PHINNEY THINKS SO!

33



You may know this guy from Orin Swift Winery - the producer of The Prisoner. His story is the result of a young winemaker's vision to blend whatever the hell he wanted together because the finished product was the ultimate goal. Cab and Zin? Throw in some Petite Sirah and who knows what else? Sure...why not?

Well, guess what? It's like a band being told that they're nuts for throwing a trumpeter into a rock act and all of a sudden they're selling out stadiums. No one can deny what Dave Phinney and his team have accomplished with LOCATIONS. Great wines. Great band.

l1

Blend of Syrah, Merlot and Petite Sirah from Washington State barrel aged for 10 months in French and American Oak. Deep purple in color, the wine brims with aromas of wild blueberries, cassis, and pleasing notes of forest floor. _e palate is initially treated to dense flavors of plum, milk chocolate and framboise. Following, a delightful interplay of violet, anise, black tea, and brown spices soon emerge giving further character to the wine. Silky tannins encapsulate things with a very pure and true finish.

LOCATIONS AR-5
Regularly Priced at $19.99
$15.39 with 6-pack Sampler Case Purchase!

l2

Blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon from Argentina. Garnet in the glass, the wine exudes aromas of brambly boysenberry complimented by hints of antique rosewood and lavender. Immediately, the wine presents a rich entry of ripe red currant, hints of dark berries, and subtle minerality which transitions into an elegant and lingering finish of thyme and sage.

LOCATIONS CA-4
Regularly Priced at $19.99
$15.39 with 6-pack Sampler Case Purchase!

l3

Blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Roussane from California. Immediately, a nose of lemon zest, citrus, and a touch of honey lead to a bright and crisp entry complemented by an encompassing nectar mouth feel. A ripe stone fruit mid palate of apricots and peaches combine with an evolving crème custard coating. It finishes with a subtle minerality and a lychee texture.
