Dave Phinney of Orin Swift fame has branched out beyond California to produce a line of international wines that show off his expertise blending different varietals as well as his uncanny ability to make wines that taste twice as good as the cost. Robert Parker said "As of now, Dave Phinney might be my “value winemaker of the year” candidate... If there are better wines for under $20 a bottle in the world today, please share that information with The Wine Advocate. These are all remarkable efforts. Kudos to Dave Phinney!" about these Locations bottling. He scored this Spanish blend scored 93 points saying "The Non-Vintage Locations E-2 Spanish Red Wine is a blend of Grenache from Priorat, Rioja and Toro, Tempranillo from Rioja, and Carignan from Ribera del Duero and Carinyena. It has the same fermentation and upbringing as the French and Italian wines. Majestic, soaring black fruit aromas intermixed with forest floor, white flowers and kirsch emerge from this full-bodied, opulent, voluptuously textured red along with stunning richness and depth."

Very smooth and tasting. Type of wine that can be drank right now but definitely taste better as it ages. I enjoy the entire Locations winery family. Would like to see more of them.

We loved the Locations F wine. Based on that, the rating, and the pricing it was a no brainer.

Is this the E-2 or the E-3? the written review mentions E-2 but in the virtual tasting, Josh says it is the E-3
A shopper on Feb 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi thanks for your question! This is a non-vintage wine which blends old wines with newer wines. It’s our understanding that the E-3 is the latest bottling of the same wine as the E-2 so they're essentially one and the same. Cheers!
Is there a strong pepper taste to this wine? Or does this wine taste more chocolate, fruit,etc.
