Orin Swift 'Palermo' Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
The origins of Orin Swift began while Phinney was studying abroad at the University of Florence in Italy. Like so many other college students he was wondering what to do after graduation. Fortunately for Dave, his roommate at the time was from an old wine family in the Sonoma valley and put the germ of a dream in his head: "Why not get into the wine business?”
Nose: Deep and luring aromas of raspberry and ripe cherry are intermingled with accents of star anise, five spice and freshly steeped black tea.
Palate: The entry is smooth with a combination of cassis and blackberry with a satiating suppleness.
Finish: Ultra round and soft, the wine finishes with reverberating length.
