Orin Swift Cellars is owned and operated by David Swift Phinney. After falling in love with wine on a trip to Florence, Italy, he worked as a temporary harvester for Robert Mondavi Winery before starting Orin Swift Cellars in 1998. Orin comes from his father’s middle name while Swift is his mother’s maiden name. The wine bottle’s label uses a photograph shot by famed Hollywood photographer, and fellow winemaker, Greg Gorman. 

Grape Varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot

Wine Region: Napa Valley, California

Tasting Notes: The dark crimson core and brick rim sets the stage, as aromas of currant, blackberry, blue fruits, anise, lavender and brioche float from the glass. Enveloping and coating becomes mixed berry pie, sarsaparilla, cola and blackcurrant with structured heft through the mid-palate. Chalky tannins a la black tea or baking chocolate round out the wine with a pleasing finish of sweet oak.

Food Pairing: Rich meat dishes
