Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Orin Swift Cellars Machete 2019

It’s a strange thing hearing you’ve caught people off guard. They aren’t quite sure what they have in front of them; they turn away confused, turn back and inspect it again— what is this? And we’re not even talking about the label s yet. The wine itself, a Petite Sirah - based blend, isn’t a typical wine; it exudes a powerful punch with a lingering delicacy— a dichotomy of sorts. Sourced from all over the state, Machete is a culmination of bird - dogging some of the best Petite Sirah, Grenache and Syrah vineyards that produce rich and flavorful fruit. Blind tasted to determine quality, the lots that make the Machete cut— pun intended— are qualified to be one with the family of labels.

Pure inky garnet in the glass, the aromatics of plum compote, wild blackberries, crushed gravel, peanut brittle and Tahitian vanilla emanate. Massive on the entry, the mid - palate is diverse with flavors of dark plums, black pepper, Amarena cherries, slow -roasted Moroccan lamb and a marbled leather texture. Rich, enveloping and vivacious, the wine finishes with perpetuating energy and length— not to mention the satisfying tannins that rouse a desire for more.

Critic Ratings

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Published 31st May 2022 - Rated 92:
The 2019 Machete Proprietary Red is a Petite Sirah-based blend, with additions of Syrah, Grenache, Zinfandel and Viognier. Sourced from Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino, it offers layers of bold blueberry fruit on both the nose and the full-bodied palate. Rich and concentrated, yet supple and long on the finish, with soft, dusty tannins and hints of cocoa, it's a solid effort that manages to nicely conceal its stated 16.1% alcohol. - Joe Czerwinski
