Big bold fits the description but it is hot. A bit disappointed in this one. I've tasted a lot of Orin Swift wines and this one was way too hot. There's a bit oak and dark molasses underneath but the heat is overwhelming. Even after a three hour decant, this one is still not tamed.
Do you find this review helpful? Yes - No
massive style typical of Orin Swift. This drank better than the last bottle. Better integration. Consumed over two nights. Good both nights, but def need to be in the mood for that style wine
Drank as part of wine club tasting
Big, dark, gamey, earthy and tannic. Barely approachable.
Dark, inky, spicy, big. Needed about an hour for it to blow off and really open up. Perfect match to marinated grilled flank steak.
