Orin Swift Abstract Red 2014
As soon as a glass is poured, aromatic notes of Luxardo cherries, ripe black plums and raspberries billow, with intricate hints of coffee, mocha and caramel in the background. The entry is expansive with dark briar fruits, cola and cocoa with tannins that are soft and dusty. The wine finishes with a hint of wild cherry and a lingering sweet oak presence.
Wine SpectatorBurly, with personality to spare and no shortage of charred, toasty oak, plus notes of dark Asian spice, smoky herb and currant. Firm tannins frame the finish. Grenache, Petite Sirah and Syrah. Drink now through 2024.
