  • 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.
  • Deep garnet-purple coloured.
  • Explosive aromas of blackberry pie, preserved plums, and crème de cassis.
  • Layers of chocolate-covered cherries, eucalyptus, and baking spices.
  • Full-bodied with a solid backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and great freshness.
  • Rich and opulent, with a long, spicy finish.
  • Blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, and small amounts of Grenache, Petit Verdot, and Mourvèdre.
  • Harvested from carefully selected vineyards across Napa Valley.
  • The wine showcases the diverse terroirs and microclimates of the region.
  • Each grape variety contributes unique characteristics to the final blend.
  • Handcrafted with meticulous attention to detail by Orin Swift winemakers.

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.
