    October 14, 2019 - Great for a rainy autumn night. An unusual plush musky grape, sweet and broad and a little cloying but in an endearing kind of way.

    August 23, 2019 - This is probably Orin Swift's best wine he makes. This is rich, velvety, juicy, and such an easy drinking wine that tastes good, has decent complexity given its price point and has potential to get better in a few years.

    It is big, bold, and in your face with ripe fruits - but if you like that then this is right up your ally! I've reviewed multiple Orin Swift's wine and usually say they have too much alcohol in them to be fully enjoyable - but this one is an exception. Really nice bottle, will likely get better in a year or two, but also enjoyable now with a decant.

    July 15, 2019 - Silky. Blackberry, mocha and smoke on the nose open up to a myriad of complex flavors; dusty herbs, bright cherry, pepper, flower and more. Finishes with earth tones, coffee, dark chocolate and more silk. Phenomenal
