2013 Orin Swift Limited releases

2013 Orin Swift Machete....$49.99
Another innovative and genius effort from Dave Phinney is his 2013 Proprietary Red Machete, which is a California red blend made from Petite Sirah, Syrah and Grenache. This wine is another that shows his tendency to produce wines of great intensity and personality. It is full-bodied and exuberant, with an inky purple color and a stunning nose of boysenberry, black cherry, chocolate and floral notes. Full-bodied, opulent and multilayered, this is another stunner that brilliantly conceals the ten months it spent in 40% new French oak, as well as its rather hefty alcohol. This is unbelievable wine and another great effort from a true, young, up-and-coming force in the world’s winedom.
Rated 94/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
