Orin Swift Abstract

Orin Swift Abstract arrives -- very limited and in stock now

2010 Orin Swift Abstract California Red Wine...$28.99

Abstract came out of Dave's love of Grenache and a desire to make a blend using that varietal as the focal point. The wine has an inky concentration rounded out with Petite Sirah and Syrah.

Abstract is a blend of Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino Grenache, Petite Sirah, and Syrah primarily from hillside vineyards. The aromas are laced with crushed black fruits and bing cherry. A mouth coating entry leads nicely into a mid palate with excellent structure and balanced acidity. Ripe cherry and strawberry dominate the finish which is clean and long.
Aged 10 months in new and seasoned French oak
15.7% Alc. by volume
