Tasting Notes For Orin Swift Cellars Machete 2020

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.

A dark mauve core with a neon purple rim, the wine stains everything. Opening aromatics on the 2020 Machete are gorgeous immediately: ripe pluot, carne asada, new cowboy boots, lilacs, espresso bean and wet concrete. On the palate, layers upon layers reveal themselves, from a plum galette topped with fior di latte gelato to 85% cacao dark chocolate to barbequed tri-tip and sweet oak. Puckering tannins to finish, the wine closes on a high note with a touch of blood orange zest and lingering acidity.
