Orin Swift Grenache Petite Syrah Syrah Napa Valley Abstract 2011
Fans of Orin Swift's Spectacular Line-up of wines made by the very talented proprietor Dave Phinney will once again be blown away by this hedonistic effort. The aromas are all berry and black fruits, with neatly integrated caramelized oak. A huge entry coats the mouth. The wine has tons of weight on the mid-palate and is dense with layers of ripe cherry and strawberries. The finish is laced with long soft tannins that go on and on. This wine must be tasted as it provides so much value in this modest price point.
External Reviews for Orin Swift Grenache Petite Syrah Syrah Napa Valley Abstract
Aromas of wild berry, floral scents, and caramelized oak are present immediately. Rich and layered, the wine has a commanding entry that leads to notes of blackberry, plum, mocha and spice.
Dark purple/black core that extends almost straight to the rim. Aromas of black cherry and cassis are supported by notes of dried herbs, clove, eucalyptus and a touch of forest floor on a rich, imposing bouquet. Made in Dave Phinneys typical full-bo... Alex Shaw. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2011 Orin Swift Abstract 750ml
A big, jammy wine. My friends and I were awestruck by the bold blackberry, blueberry, raspberry and strawberry flavors, and well-rounded tannins.
Complex, if a bit rustic and tannic, featuring lots of red berry, fresh-turned earth, sour berry and cranberry notes, ending with a touch of road tar. Will appeal to those who like to chew on their reds. Grenache, Petite Sirah and Syrah. Drink now through 2021.
