Wine Review: This opaque and midnight blue colored blend from Orin Swift was a real crowd pleaser. It opens with a blueberry bouquet with a hint of Dr. Pepper. On the palate, it is medium bodied, slightly acidic and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry with notes of minerality, espresso and hint of blueberry and oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for a little bit. I would suggest pairing this very nice wine with a ribeye at your favorite steakhouse. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: An opaque, purple chroma is brilliantly on display in the glass. An alluring fragrance of bright floral notes, violet juxtaposed with intriguing mountain characteristics. The entry is big, dark, and brooding with concentrated berry flavors, black cherry, mocha, and delightful earthy, brambly notes. Soft and lush, the tannins are sublime which offsets a pleasing mineral finish. **Bottled with 12 Different Labels, you may not receive the one pictured**
