Orin Swift Zinfandel California Saldo 2007
sweeter than I expected, with caramel and strawberry in the mid-palate, almost a little syrupy. wonderful finish. had it with fig/anise bread, which it matched nicely. definitely better with decanting.
Chocolate on the nose with a a slight hint of damp vegetation. light fruit on the front with chocolate coming through on the mid palette and finish with some woodiness and tobacco. Crisp acidity towards the end helps to provide overall balance.
Really good nose, cherry and bright fruit fills the room as it sits. Good fruit on the palate with cherry, rasberry and licorice at the end, long finish. Great wine from a favorite of mine Dave Phinney but similar zins available for cheaper.
Really enjoyed this wine. I have yet to dislike a wine from Orin Swift yet. A little pricey but would buy again.
External Reviews for Orin Swift Zinfandel California Saldo
Well-built, yet rich and stylish, with spicy blackberry aromas and zesty, layered flavors of black cherry and licorice framed by toasty oak. Offers a long, satisfying finish. Drink now through 2015.
