Orin Swift 8 Years In The Desert Red 2019
Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Zinfandel Blend 8 Years in the Desert delivers notions of stewed plums, baked raspberries and fruitcake with hints of powdered cinnamon, clove oil, tree bark, hoisin and dusty soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of ripe, spicy black and red fruits, supported by chewy tannins and tons of freshness, finishing long and earthy. 35,700 cases were made.
A bombastic style, but what this lacks in finesse it compensates with bold blackberry, licorice and smoky pepper flavors. Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah. Drink now through 2027. 35,700 cases made.
