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 ribena 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!78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc Orin Swift Website

The wine opens with a commanding presence of rich, fruit driven aromas laced with a hint of French oak. Upon entry, vibrant flavors of ripe currant, plum, roasted fig, and mocha invite the palate and then transition effortlessly into a supple and polished experience. Able tannin chains are balanced with bright acidity that supports a finish with almost never ending fruit themes. Perfectly approachable now, the wine can last for up to ten years in the cellar. - WineryBlend:83% Cabernet Sauvignon8% Merlot5% Malbec4% Cabernet FrancMaturation: 16 months in French Oak, 30% newAlc./Vol.: 15.5% ** Only 30 in Stock **

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 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 5% Malbec 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. Vibrant flavors of ripe currant, plum, roasted fig, and mocha invite the palate and then transition effortlessly into a supple and polished experience. Soft tannins are balanced with bright acidity that supports a finish with almost never-ending fruit themes. This wine is amazing now and has another 10 years to cellar. 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.
