Orin Swift Eight Years In The Desert 2020

Orin Swift cellars was started in 1995 by David Phinney. Since then, the brand has gained cult status across the USA for not only its stunning wines, but also for its quirky labels and the stories behind them.

  • Aromas of pure brambly raspberry juice and blueberry preserves with a hint of white pepper and High Sierra forest floor
  • Yet, the perceived sweetness on the nose is just that, perceived, and doesn’t carry through to the palate
  • Lush and enveloping with a beam of acidity, notes of blackberry pie, plum and kirsch flourish
  • Ultra-round tannins and lingering raspberry, the wine finishes in slow-motion

Pair Orin Swift Eight Years in the Desert 2020 with beef, lamb, barbecued pork ribs and meat stews. Why not try a hearty pasta dishes.

8 Years in the Desert is homage to California. Anchored by a distinctly Californian grape varietal, Zinfandel. They have been able to source fruit from across the state and craft a wine that shows off their style.

As a result of picking later than most, they have a higher risk of stuck fermentations specifically with Zin; their methods have minimised those risks although they still remain year to year.

Complementing the structure is Petite Sirah and Syrah, by careful selection this blend is the fourth progression in the series.
