Orin Swift 8 Years In The Desert Rare Red Blend Napa Valley 2021

  • Grape Zinfandel Syrah Petite Sirah
  • Country USA
  • Region Napa Valley
  • ABV 15.6 %
  • Producer Orin Swift
  • Case size 6 / 75cl
  • Aged for 7 months in French Oak, 30% New
  • With an opaque core with a red amethyst rim, the wine opens with ripe raspberry and blackberry, dark plum preserves, and hints of black pepper and clove. An entry of heft, the palate is packed with blueberry and sweet black cherry along with a touch of fresh herbs—thyme, savory, and tarragon. Long on the finish, the ripe tannins, a dash of ash, and notes of black tea round out the wine.

The Orin Swift story starts in 1995 when, on a whim, David Swift Phinney understandably took a friend up on an offer to spend a term studying in Florence.During that time, he was introduced to wine, how it was made, and got hooked.After graduating in 1997 he took a temporary harvest job at the iconic Robert Mondavi winery. Harvest is not an easy job and David quickly decided that if he was going to work this hard it should eventually be for himself and in 1998 he founded Orin Swift Cellars with two tons of zinfandel, a disruptive approach to labels and marketing and not much else. Today Orin Swift is owned by California icons E&J Gallo, but David remains at the helm, disregarding the traditions of terroir and site-specific bottlings in favour of simply procuring the best grapes to make the most drinkable blends and putting them in bottles that really stand out.
