Dark nose, not very expressive. Peppery cassis and blackberry. On the palate, flavors of ripe strawberry and black fruits with nicely integrated oak. Mouth coating entry with nice structure and good acidity. Long finish with soft tannins and subtle oak sweetness. The tangy dark berry fruit is layered with pepper. Savory aftertaste. 6/9/12

A delicious Zinfandel (rare that I adore a Zinfandel). Lush, dark fruits, pepper and spice. On the dry side but good balance and lovely from start to soft, lingering finish. Have some to cellar; post wine tasting had to break open a bottle with dinner and asiago cheese and gala apples both paired up nicely. From the nose (harsh, dark, rather strongly of alcohol even well-breathed in proper glass) would not have expected such a delightful wine.

Winemaker Notes - Through the success of his Prisoner label, Orin Swift Cellars owner/winemaker Dave Phinney has gained access to some of the best Zinfandel vineyards in the Northern California growing community. Dave recently decided he wanted to make a high quality Zinfandel and what he created did not fit the constraints of a single AVA. The word "saldo" has many different meanings in Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. In Spanish, it mainly refers to "balance on hand", and sometimes it can mean "from here and there." This wine represents the best of the best lots made by Dave from vineyards all across Northern California.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator: Dense in structure, but shows finesse, with toasty black cherry and grilled anise aromas that lead to ripe, zesty flavors of blackberry, espresso and fresh pepper. Best from 2013 through 2017. (6/30/11)
