Wow. Just wow. And I am usually not the biggest Cab fan. This was as bold and as dry as most Cab but had a more complex flavor. A favorite (unfortunately limited run) with almost every food.

Aromas of dark, brooding fruit with subtle French oak in the background lead into a smooth entry of ripe cherry and fig. The mid-palate is subtle and stretches with loads of bright acidity and candied cassis.

Napa Valley, CaliforniaOrin Swift Palermo is a gorgeous new Napa Valley Cab from gifted winemaker Dave Phinney. Owner of Orin Swift Cellars, Dave Phinney has come a long way since beginning his winemaking career with 2 tons of purchased Zinfandel grapes just a year out of college in 1998! Following big successes with wines such as Papillon and The Prisoner, Phinney has launched several new labels in recent vintages, including Abstract and Palermo. Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon is made from the excess grapes purchased to blend Mercury Head and Papillon, so this wine is a tremendous value! Orin Swift Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc from well-drained hillside vineyards in the Napa Valley. Aromas of dark, brooding fruit with subtle French oak in the background lead into a smooth entry of ripe cherry and fig. The mid-palate is subtle and stretches with loads of bright acidity and candied cassis. Layers of stone fruit and black currant lead into a round, supple, lingering finish of integrated soft tannins that roll on and on. This wine is amazing now and has another 8 to 10 years in it at least! Aged for 16 months in French oak, 30% new. 15.5% alc.Enjoy Orin Swift Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon with steak, lamb chops, BBQ ribs, grilled vegetables and aged cheeses.

2010 Napa Valley Cabernet SauvignonAt Orin Swift we purchase Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for Mercury Head and Papillon. Every year we buy more grapes than we need for the two blends. We do this so we always have multiple vineyards and corresponding wine characteristics to choose from. We also experiment with different grape maturity levels, French barrel producers, and fermentation techniques. This is done to try to learn more with each vintage and create a wine with greater complexity and balance. These multiple lots either add something to the final blend or become their own parts, parts we consider to be separate among equals. We blended these separate but equal parts together in a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon called Palermo.Tasting NotesAromas of dark, brooding fruit with subtle French oak in the background lead into a smooth entry of ripe cherry and fig.

Dense and chewy, with complex dark berry, mocha, cedar and plum flavors. Tight and focused, this red is impressive on the finish, where the flavors flow freely. Drink now through 2025.
