Orin Swift 8 Years In The Desert Red 2021
There are almost 50,000 cases of the 2021 Zinfandel Blend 8 Years in the Desert, a mix of Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Grenache. Mixed raspberries, blackberries and blueberries appear on the nose, while the palate is full-bodied, ripe and supple, yet with just enough softly dusty tannins, a velvety texture and no suggestion of raisined fruit. With its amiable nature and fresh, lingering finish, it should win lots of fans.
Gutsy and concentrated, with blackberry, smoky bacon and green peppercorn flavors that finish with broad-shouldered tannins. All power, no finesse. Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2023. 46,000 cases made.
