Sharp tannins, spice and clove with big bold fruit. I recently read a comment saying Orin Swift is notorious for making teeth stainers...... Couldn't agree more. Massive alcohol content, decanted for 80 minutes.

What a wonderful table wine from Orin Swift. It was too vibrant right out of the bottle but was heavenly after decanting. Right off the bat I tasted blueberry pie and vanilla cookie dough, but hints of blackberries also came through. It's medium bodied and smooth through the finish. Guessing it was made in new American oak.

Awesome blend and really smooth on the palate. Must buy! Pairs really nicely with earthy dishes that are umami driven.
