Orin Swift Cellars 8 Years in the Desert Zinfandel

Founded in 1998 by winemaker Dave Phinney, Orin Swift’s imaginative and exciting approach to brand innovation and winemaking has led to international acclaim and an intensely loyal following. Dave named Orin Swift as a tribute to his family – Orin is his father’s middle name and Swift is his mother’s maiden name. He spent the next decade making wine for others as well as himself and grew the brand to what it is today. We welcome you to stop by and visit us at our Napa Valley tasting room located in downtown St. Helena.


WINE NOTES: The 2018 Orin Swift 8 Years in the Desert has an opaque core with a red amethyst rim as it pours into the glass, the wine opens with ripe raspberry and blackberry, dark plum preserves and hints of black pepper and clove. An entry of heft, the palate is packed with blueberry and sweet black cherry along with touch of fresh herbs- thyme, savory and tarragon. Long on the finish, the ripe tannins, a dash of ash, and notes of black tea round out the wine.
