Orin Swift 2018 Eight Years In The Desert

$42.00

Heady aromas of brambly raspberry, black fig, and peppercorn dominate; time in glass exposes more—dark chocolate, fennel, and High Sierra forest floor. The palate is lush and opulent with blackberries, dark plums, and currants. More flavors add to the quality of the blend—a visceral minerality and fresh Herbs de Provence. Fully integrated with puckering tannins, the wine bows out with finesse.

92 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate:
“Composed o Zinfandel with Syrah, Petite Syrah and Grenache, the 2018 Red Blend 8 Years in the Desert was aged for eight months in American oak barrels (37% new). Deep garnet-purple colored, it comes roaring out of the glass with notions of baked black cherries, raspberry preserves, blueberry tart and potpourri plus hints of garrigue, tobacco leaf and cinnamon stick. Full-bodied, the richly fruited palate has a pleasantly chewy texture and loads of savory layers coming through on the finish. 72,570 cases were made.”

91 Points Wine Spectator:
“Ripe and plump, offering bold flavors of huckleberry, licorice and smoked pepper that finish with succulent tannins. Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Grenache. Drink now through 2025. 72,570 cases made.”
