Machete Napa Valley Red Blend 2012

This 2012 red blend from the house of Orin Swift is always enjoyable.

Unfortunately it wasn't stored properly and shows some over ripen fruits. However it is still very yummy. Showing black fruits with Oak vanilla spices, chocolates tobacco mocha coke earth.

Balanced with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

Spicy on the finish with fine tannins.

15.7% alcohol by volume.

Paso Robles Proprietary Red 2016

It’s value for money night. This is a nicely balanced and very approachable blend from Austin Hope. It is a little more restrained than the Cabernet which can be a little too sweet and extracted but it has a great combination of fruit and spice flavours. I enjoyed this and would add it to my ‘bankers’ under $30 along with Orin Swifts Abstract and Daou’s The Pessimist. — 12 days ago

Abstract California Grenache Blend 2016

Post Christmas Day celebrations with Orin Swift Abstract. We decanted for over an hour. The wine is a blend of Grenache, Petite Sirah and Syrah. Gorgeous aromas of ripe red fruit including raspberry, bing cherries and strawberry open the nose. The aromas continue onto the palate with added layers of barbecued meat, rhubarb, thyme, surrounding a dark fruit core. The smoothness is enveloping and lasting, the wine finishes with a delicate maraschino cherry note. Spectacular and one of my all time favorites. — 22 days ago

@Michael Bleszynski I’ve been careful not to be sucked into OS’s very clever marketing, but I have to admit they are producing some tasty juice.
