So what happens when Dave Phinney (Orin Swift The Prisoner) and Joel Gott (Trinchero, Joel Gott Wines, and Newman's Own) hunker down and decide to make a wine together? Pure, unabashed, unadulterated red wine bliss. Phinney hears from a friend about the great terroir in Maury, where the vines struggle in the rocky hillsides. Where's that you say? The South of France in Languedoc. He's so jazzed by what he sees/tastes that he creates a winery there. He persuades his buddy Gott to partner up on a project and thus Shatter is born. WA 92 pts.
