A Mercury Dime graces the label. Intense concentrated ripe black berry fruit aromas with smoky notes. On the palate blackberry and currents on the edge of sweetness, with tobacco and cacao tones wrapped in fine smooth tannins. Lingering with a little heat ending with a dried cherry fruit character and mineral tones. Another nice offering from Orin Swift!

Wow! A Dave Phinney special! Dark cherry and blackberry fruit aromas and flavors. Hints of tobacco, earth and a little bit of vanilla. Lighter on body, so it took a bit of chilling. (Great on a hot day!). Beautifully balanced and smooth (Very “Merlot-like” but with all the characteristics of Cab Sauv). Brilliantly constructed. Amazing wine!

2014. Decanted 5 hours before drinking and could have used an additional 5. Still an excellent beverage only paled by its 2013 older bro a bit smoother.
