96 points Parker                                                     Machete 2015 Red from Orin Swift and one of his best ever! Extremely limited. previous vintage 96 Points Robert Parker:  "The Proprietary Red Blend Machete finished at 15.7% natural alcohol and is a blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah and Grenache aged 10 months in 40% new French oak. This wine is telltale opaque bluish/purple with a super nose of barbecue meat and herbs, blackberries, blueberries, white flowers and sweet, dark raspberries in the background. The wine has fabulous texture, great intensity, full-bodied power (15.7%), and a long, long finish. It is a killer effort and like the Abstract, probably best drunk in its first 5-6 years of life because of its charm." Machete is a blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah and Grenache.  Petite Sirah may be winemaker Dave Phinney’s favorite grape varietal and wine . He has been growing and making it since the 2000 vintage. Massive and powerful with instense color and structure, a limited release Petite Sirah blend called “Machete” was launched in 2009.   The label concept has been two years in the making,and is decidedly unique in its various formats.  **Bottled with 12 different labels, you may not receive the one pictured, but all case orders of 12 bottles will receive all 12 different labels*

The wine, a blend of (changes each vintage) 90.6% Chardonnay, 5.8% Sauvignon Blanc and 3.6% Muscat, aged in 40% new French oak for 9 mos. Grapes mostly sourced from Sonoma Coast & Atlas Peak AVA’s. Bright straw, aromas of stone & tropical fruits with floral spice. The palate shows flavors of peach, melon and apple with hints of sweet lemon and wet stone. The wine is well balanced with integrated oak, crisp, lively acidity and a long finish ending with burst of minerality. Nice alternative to 100% CA Chard.
