ORIN SWIFT Cabernet Sauvignon 'Palermo' 2014

The 2014 'Palermo' by Orin Swift is a fantastic new release wine. Weighing in at 15.5% alcohol, the wine is an intense and dramatic effort from this estate. The Cabernet was sourced from all major growing regions in Napa Valley and was aged 10 months in French oak (35% new) prior to bottling. This inky hued wine is a blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Malbec that opens with black cherry, mocha, black cherry and roasted figs with hints of green bell pepper. There are dense flavors of blackberry preserves, cherry cough syrup, blueberry compote and tar. This is layered and delicious that is also absolutely sumptuous on the second day of tasting.
