2018 Orin Swift Abstract

California | Red Blend
"Aged for eight months in oak (27% new; of which, 57% was French oak), the 2018 Proprietary Red Abstract is a blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple colored, it offers up bombastic notions of crushed black cherries, warm plums and blueberry compote with hints of dried herbs, spice box and new leather. Full-bodied, the palate explodes with rich, ripe black and blueberry preserves and a velvety texture, finishing long and vibrant."

 

92 PointsRobert Parker's Wine Advocate

 

"A bold and jammy blend, plump with personality, offering blackberry, espresso and smoky, peppered beef flavors that build structure toward medium-grained tannins. Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2028."

"A juicy, fruity red with lots of dried berries and walnuts, as well as hints of raisins. Full-bodied and very rich, yet not completely overdone. Leather and graphite. Drink now."

 

91 PointsJames Suckling

"Aromatics with gravity, the wine pulls you in with notes of blueberry, black fig, bloodied strawberry and hints of musk and rhubarb. Bold on the entry, the palate exudes rich notes of dark plum and ripe framboise with a slightly chalky texture. The wine transitions effortlessly to a finish of black cherry, sweet licorice and some quick drying tannins."
