Orin Swift Cellars

Orin Swift

Slander California Pinot Noir 2018

I am a big fan of David Swift Phinney wines. In 1998 David founded Orin Swift Cellars; Orin is his father’s middle name and Swift is his mother’s maiden name. Aged 10 mos in French oak, 42% new, Ruby with complex aromas of fresh fruits, floral and herb spice, nice mouthfeel. On the palate flavors of raspberry and cherry with cacao and hints of pepper spice. Rich full chewy tannins, well balanced on long finish ending with fruit and earthy spice. — 13 hours ago

Orin Swift Cellars

Blank Stare Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Dense, verging on oily.
Tastes like a big bowl of fruit salad (grapes, cantaloupe, green pineapple and apricots; seasoned with touches of mint and lemonzest).
A big, bold and audacious SB.

8 Years in the Desert Zinfandel Blend 2019

Welcome back, Uncle Orin! Decanted for about 3hrs. Can’t miss the dark jam throughout, tiny bit of spice up front that goes away, medium thick texture, quick spice hit again on the end. — 8 days ago
