Orin Swift Machete 2020
Save $51.12 (52%)
Orin Swift Machete is violet ink in the glass, with a nose of black plums, cassis and cacao. The robust entry consists of a progressing palate of blackberry and boysenberry compote, a reduction of dark plum and ripe figs, and pure Amarena cherry. Flashes of vanilla and traces of minerality evolve into chalky tannins and a smooth lingering finish. Blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah and Grenache from California. From winemaker Dave Phinney.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Proprietary Red Machete needs some swirling to reveal a core of beautiful crushed black plums, boysenberries and black cherry compote plus hints of cracked black pepper, garrigue and camphor. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is laden with muscular, crunchy black fruits and plush tannins, finishing long with lovely freshness. 22,563 cases were made..February/2021
