Producer Notes

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

Deep purple with slightly red edge. Rough, new world wine. Mellowed in the glass over the course of an hour, but just ended up with flabby fruit. May have been slightly biased with the high bar set by The Prisoner, but my girlfriend, who has a better palate than mine, agreed completely with me. A brash fruit bomb that mellows into nothing. Would be an enjoyable party wine at half the price.

Very fruit forward and sweet. Vanilla and dried cherry. Not ready to drink would cellar 1-2 years and try again.

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.
