Editorial Reviews for Prisoner Orin Swift Napa
Jammy black currant and blueberry fruit greet the nose showing off a bit of a pruny edge with very black peppery top notes and a slightly dusty character. In the mouth this has surprisingly intact acid, offering decent brightness and height in the mouth with lovely blackberry fruit but here is a fair amount of alcohol showing here, and while the fruit does show nice purity the wine is not particularly well balanced. 84pts
Aromatic, some white flowers aromas. Fresh in mooth, you feel peach sirup, and it has a quite long finish. To pair with lobster.
External Reviews for Prisoner Orin Swift Napa
Good intensity. This inky red barrel sample shows tight flavors of toasty oak, ripe plum and blueberry and polished, almost elegant texture, with very well-integrated tannins. Modern style and structure give this wine a bright, sophisticated character.
Deep ruby to the rim. Moderately full-bodied. Balanced acidity. Highly extracted. Mildly oaked. Mildly tannic. Black fruits, minerals. Full, fleshy aromas with a rounded personality. Firmly structured through the finish, with a deep core of black fruits. Approachable now, but this is built to age.
Young and tight, with garrigue and roasted game aromas peeking out from a core of ripe black currant, plum and fig fruit. Lots of toast, tobacco and iron as well. The finish is well-endowed with tannins, but they are ripe and pure. Best from 2008 through 2025.
Dark red color. Sweet, lush but energetic aromas of bitter cherry, redcurrant, rhubarb, espresso and damp earth. Silky and fine-grained, with a wonderfully suave texture and youthful, primary dark berry, singed cherry and licorice flavors. The very fine, dusty tannins perfectly frame the sweet, fresh red berry flavors. Finishes seamless and very long.
A nice mix of red fruit, herb and sweetly earthy flavors give appealing complexity, while soft tannins make it accessible now. The long finish promises improvement with age.
Full body, medium acid. Red fruits, cinnamon, ginger, leather. Soft, lush texture. Heavy wood and game notes. Complex. High tannins in the finish suggest some cellar time.
Beaucastelandrsquo;s 2001 is assertive and intense, its black fruit flavors acquiring leathery, peppery overtones. Its brooding power is complemented by a silky texture, and it finishes with ripe, suave tannins.
