Orin Swift Eight Years in the Desert 2017
Heady aromas of brambly raspberry, black fig and peppercorn dominate; time in the glass exposes more – dark chocolate, fennel and High Sierra forest floor. The palate is lush and opulent with blackberries, dark plums and currants. More flavors add to the quality of the blend – a visceral minerality and fresh Herbs de Provence. Fully integrated with puckering tannins, the wine bows out with finesse.
Blend: Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah
