Tasting Notes For Orin Swift Cellars 8 Years in the Desert 2022
Orin Swift Cellars 8 Years in the Desert 2022 is a premium red wine that is a true representation of the Orin Swift style. This wine is composed of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Syrah, all blended together to create a rich, complex flavor profile that showcases the best of each grape varietal. The wine is a beautiful bright violet color that immediately catches the eye. On the nose, it offers an explosion of fruity aromas such as brambly raspberry juice, blueberry preserves, and blackberry pie, complemented by hints of white pepper and High Sierra forest floor.
The wine's lush and enveloping texture is balanced perfectly by a beam of acidity that keeps it fresh and vibrant on the palate. The ultra-round tannins give way to a lingering raspberry finish that feels like it's happening in slow motion. The wine is designed to be enjoyed now, but it will also age well for several years to come. Each year, for the next eight years, Orin Swift Cellars will release one limited edition bottle of 8 Years in the Desert, each adorned with a handcrafted label, making it a must-have for collectors and wine enthusiasts.
Orin Swift Cellars has been producing some of the best Zinfandel wines for over 20 years, and 8 Years in the Desert is the perfect representation of their mastery of the grape. The winery has learned that making great wine requires starting with great grapes, and that's exactly what they've done with this wine. By adding Petite Sirah and Syrah to the blend, they've managed to mitigate the unpredictability of Zinfandel and bring out the best of each varietal. This wine is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a wine that is complex, rich, and unforgettable.
