Producer Notes

Orin Swift Cellars is the realization of a dream that began while Dave Phinney was studying abroad at the University of Florence.

A creamy rich nose with spicy licorice notes and mild butter cream. On the palate, look for vibrant fruit; blackberry, blueberry. Tannins are smooth and long.

Chocolate covered blueberries on the smell! After 3 hours it has more of a cigar smell to it. Beautiful depth and layers to this wine. It feels like silk going down my throat! Chocolate covered cherries at first, but as time goes on, it really opens up and gives you a temptress that teases you way to much! It's beautiful!

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
