Ask any wine aficionado and they will tell you—Dave Phinney, owner and winemaker at Orin Swift makes some of the best wines on the planet! This amazing lot features two of his finest creations. What’s better than that? How about a sold out magnum signed by Mr. Phinney?
The Prisoner (2010) 3.0L has a deep ruby hue that is nearly opaque. The aromas elevate from the glass starting with black currant, dark blackberry, cherry, and cassis rounded out by subtle hints of seasoned French and American oak. The entry of the wine is massive and leads into a lush middle framed by bright acid and supple tannins. The finish is long, lingering and filled with soft velvety tannins lasting for nearly thirty seconds.
Saldo (2008) is rich, ripe, and full-bodied, with aromas of black cherry and bramble fruit. The tannins are soft but the wine has a huge mid-palate. The soft, lush finish lingers. 2008 was a perfect vintage for Saldo. The hot weather was ideal for creating ripe zinfandel. Drink now and enjoy over the next five years.
