Orin Swift Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
|California, Napa Valley
The wine sits in the glass with a dark mauve and crimson red rim. Classic and traditional Left Bank Bordeaux-style nose of ripe cassis, blackberry and assorted blue fruits with a touch of chapparal. The entry is robust with notes of blackberry pie, black cherry, and impressive weight. Soft tannins and a bright finish round out the wine with a lingering touch of orange peel.
Fruit-driven, with a nice display of mulberry and blackberry fruit carried by light savory, anise and sassafras notes. Toasty finish, but the fruit pushes through nicely. Drink now through 2026. 28,000 cases made.
