Dark violet with a ruby crown, the wine exhibits classic Napa Cabernet aromatics with the Orin Swift style: black fruits—plum and cherry—dark chocolate, leather and Rutherford Dust coalesce from the glass. The entry is elegant and begins to flood the palate with notes of cassis, blackberry, blueberry, caramel and a touch of brown sugar and cinnamon: rich and bold. Seamless and focused, the wine closes with lingering dusty tannins and a touch of baking chocolate.
All Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon picked at Orin Swift is treated in the cellar as a Mercury Head candidate. Yet, year after year, a few lots from the Rutherford, St. Helena and Atlas Peak AVAs always outshine the rest in terms of complexity, structure and overall quality. The wine is aged for 18 months in French oak (50% new) offering an extremely luxurious and rich textured Cabernet.
