As we ruminated on what really matters, we combined a sentimental moment from Creative Director Dave Phinney’s life, with a wine with deep roots from winemaker Sebastian Lane - to deliver a soulful California Red.

A fleeting moment of sky writing captured the love Dave feels for his daughter, Angelina Jean. The dissipating letters of the entire phrase form the scene across the labels of the six bottles, with the “A” already becoming amorphic in the windy skies.
After talking through the theme for Sentimental Value, choosing which wine to make was an easy choice. I planted the vineyard that produced these grapes more than 20 years ago, and I spent a good portion of my formative years on this special property.
The current owners are as gracious as the property itself and allowed me to make a wine which I’m really proud of. To make it was a privilege, to share it with GESTALT members is a pleasure.
