Orin Swift Zinfandel California Saldo 2006
2006 Orin Swift the Prisoner Zinfandel Blend There are no "formal" notes on this wine yet... there are no "official" ratings. But this is the BUZZ: the 2006 Prisoner is even BETTER than the 2005 (which garnered rave reviews and received 93pts from James Laube...) Now is the time for Prisoner fans to procure an ample supply at the best price - and it is time for Prisoner newbies to try this delicious blend from winemaker Dave Phinney. Fruit sourced from some of the best of the best Napa Valley vineyards: Tofanelli, Morisoli, Page Nord, Marston, to name a few. This is a California Wine.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
To date, my favorite red blend. A light aroma with bright berries and some tobacco. Very smooth with a long finish and strong blackberry flavors with a sweet side. Very well balanced and easy to drink. Price may kick it out of the everyday list and into the special occasion list, but still a good wine for the price. 51% Zin, 23% Cab Sauv, 12% Syrah, 6% Petit Sirah, 6% Charbono, 2% Grenache.
