Fruit forward, lush, and still soft tannins. Fit for a pairing with pizza. Another stellar wine from Orin Swift.

I have a hard time assessing this wine, as it is still such a baby. This wine easily has another 7-10 years on it. After decanting for several hours it still needs more time in the decanter. There is lovely red fruit and nice spice notes, however the finish is overpowered by alcohol. Clearly, this wine needs more time.

A true beauty, 12 years after bottling. Some interesting oxidative notes makes this wine a definite match for food. Minerality, spice, and some nutty flavors. A bit restrained on the nose at first, but opens with time.

Wasn't sure how the 2003 would hold up but I'm happily surprised. Blackberry and plum predominately with earthy notes both on the nose and palate. A wonderful surprise from 14 Hands.

Wine was in an awkward stage... on it's way up. Much more earth than fruit was detectable. Should have held off for a few more years
