  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

    Wine Spectator 2016 Top 100 #6 Generous and expressive, big and brawny, this offers a mouthful of tannins but also brims with flavors and aromas, including Earl Grey tea, dark chocolate, dried violet and toasted gingerbread. Rich notes of plum and black cherry are balanced by forest floor and earth accents, which linger on the long finish. Petite Sirah, Syrah and Grenache.

    Good value for the price. Big body. Lots of dark berries and black currants. Brambly, with good tannins on the long finish. Stood up well to spicy Thai food.

Orin Swift Cellars is the realization of a dream that began while Dave Phinney was studying abroad at the University of Florence. When he returned to the States, he worked his first harvest for the Robert Mondavi Winery on the nightshift. The next year, he started Orin Swift Cellars with two tons of purchased Zinfandel grapes.

Phinney's 2005 The Prisoner earned the #17 spot on Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines list, making Orin Swift Cellars a well-known name in fine wine.
