High expectations not fully met. The different components of this blend never really integrated, so I am at a loss about this wine. Perhaps it needs a lot more decanting. At the price, I feel it’s all marketing, so I am not really tempted to explore further.

Some progress here... Why is it that the ladies like to paint? I dunno but I’ll take it.
Really enjoyed this bottle. I’m sure the DL snobs will scoff, but we care not.
Wifey rating.

A bit over-the-top and without much structure.

Unique as you would expect with Grenache, Syrah, and petite sirah. First taste had me thinking nice fruit, full body, and lingering finish; half a glass had me thinking this wine is crazy good.

Big wine with lush fruit, teeth stainer (like most of Orin Swift wines). Nice rich, weighty mouthfeel. Goes down easy. Had at 4th grade parent party and was my "go to" bottle.

Just a big ol’ inky jelly jar. Ripe fig and plum, rhubarb and tannins on the back end.
