If you know me, you know I love wine. More importantly if we ever talked about wine at some point I brought up Orin Swift. It is my hands down favorite brand! There are only a few people who would truly understand and appreciate this experience so thank you @tsunamitogami for sharing in this experience with me. Next year no excuses, let's get our Somm!!!😉🍷 #winelovers #orinswift #winemorewhineless #allaboutthewine

2017 @orinswift 8 Years in the Desert, really nice, orange 🍊 peel, capri sun, and a freshly open can of tennis balls are in this juice, Bx3, need to try again and stash a few for later consumption. The 2015 @hesscollection we know pretty well, solid, fruit forward, let her breathe a bit. The 2013 @badgermountain_powerswinery Cab reserve was good, dark fruit, need to try it again for rating. #hopsandgrapes #caliwine #napa #orinswift #redwine

Incorporating all of Bordeaux grape varietals, Papillon is Orin Swift's masterly take on the left bank clarets - bold and massive yet also delicate and complex. Splendid well aged Napa.

With cooler weather finally here, it’s now the perfect time of year to enjoy a nice hearty red wine! Four new bold red arrivals this week:
*********************************
2017 @finca_bacara ‘Time Waits For No One’ Monastrell -Jumilla, Spain. “Aged 6 months in American oak barrels. Garnet red color with violet hues; clean and bright. Powerful and intense nose where a ripe fruit aroma dominates, with hints of new wood. In the mouth it is balanced, round, and savory, with a pure finish.” @decanter - 95 Points! Regularly $18.99 On SALE $16.99!
*********************************
2017 @orinswift ‘8 Years in the Desert’ Red - Napa Valley, California. “Heady aromas of brambly raspberry, black fig and peppercorn dominate; time in glass exposes more—dark chocolate, fennel and High Sierra forest floor. The palate is lush and opulent with blackberries, dark plums and currants. More flavors add to the quality of the blend—a visceral minerality and fresh Herbs de Provence. Fully integrated with puckering tannins, the wine bows out with finesse. BLEND: Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah.” $44.99.
*********************************
2015 @boglevineyards Phantom - California. “Phantom, Bogle’s mysterious apparition of ripe berry and relentless spice, returns to haunt wine lovers. Full of concentration and intensity, this wine will tease, tantalize and linger long after the last sip is gone. Wild berries and black pepper are framed by the influence of oak aging with baking spices and a hint of toasty vanilla.” Regularly $29.99 On SALE $20.99!!
*********************************
@capitals ‘2018 Champions Limited Edition Red’ - Central Coast/Monterey, CA. “Rock the Red is a happy marriage of Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon and Monterey Merlot. Aged for 15 months in a combination of French and American Oak, this Bordeaux-style blend shows soft tannins, ripe cassis, chocolate and berry flavors.” SOLD OUT FOR NOW. MORE EXPECTED SOON.

** UPDATE: @lexiemay27 just informed me that the wine creator is a @uarizona Alumn! Bear down, Dave Phinney! ** Leave it to my wino cousin and her beverage director husband to introduce me to an amazing new wine from the Orin Swift family. We’ve been waiting for 8 Years in the Desert for months, maybe even over a year. I’m so glad that I was in town to share our first bottle together! It definitely didn’t disappoint. It reminded me of the first time I had Prisoner in 2015 (also thanks to my cousin & her hubby) and it’s made by the same wine creator, Dave Phinney. Similar to Prisoner, 8 Years in the Desert is a red blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah and small percentages of other red varietals. From what I heard the bottles started pre-sale on October 1st and will go up in price in a couple months. They’re currently $45 a bottle on orinswift.com. Plus, they’re offering 8 different handmade labels over the next 8 years as a limited release every October. Cheers!🍷🍷 .

Here it is: 2017 Orin Swift ‘8 Years in the Desert’ Red Blend

Eight limited edition bottles will be released – one at a time – for the next eight years, every year in October. Each is adorned with a handcrafted label.

WINEMAKER’S NOTES: Heady aromas of brambly raspberry, black fig and peppercorn dominate; time in glass exposes more—dark chocolate, fennel and High Sierra forest floor. The palate is lush and opulent with blackberries, dark plums and currants. More flavors add to the quality of the blend—a visceral minerality and fresh Herbs de Provence. Fully integrated with puckering tannins, the wine bows out with finesse. BLEND: Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah. MATURATION: Aged for 8 months in French Oak, 30% New . #orinswift #zinfandel #davephinney #8yearsinthedesert #cityvineyard

That right there is the bittersweet face of someone who just tonight realized she only has 2 more days at her second home 💔
.
.
.
For any of my followers who may not yet know, I’ll be moving to England at the end of the month. And just tonight, it dawned on me that I’m really leaving this little wine shop that I’ve called home for the past 3 years 😭 Tonight, a dear customer of mine came in and offered some advice, kind words and a hug. And simultaneously reminded me of just how much I’m going to miss not only this place, but all of the people in it.
.
.
.
#Claremont is a small town, and like it or not in a small town you get to know people... and people get to know you. And while it took me a while to get comfortable with that fact, more and more it’s become such a blessing to have so many folks offer me such warmth when they hear the snippets of my story.
.
.
.
It’s been a real journey to finally getting my UK visa and being able to join my husband. It would be remiss of me not to acknowledge all of the regulars who have been so invested in my life, who shook their fists with me every time I said “Nope, it’s still not here.” People’s kindness will never fail to humble me.
.
.
.
Tonight, one of those very customers insisted on buying me a bottle of #8yearsinthedesert as a gift when I was attempting to sell it to him! (which by the way, goes great with cheese pizza and raucous laughter) And all at once a sadness rushed over me as I realized I wouldn’t be regularly seeing him and his family anymore.
.
.
.
I read once that your work is how you love people. But in the last 3 years, it feels like my work is how people have been able to love on me 💗 I’m eternally grateful for the 3 years I’ve spent here and all the paths that have crossed mine along the way.

Proud to welcome this new #californiawine to the store! After an 8 year hiatus, due to a no compete claus, #orinswift returns to making #zinfandel with “Eight Years In The Desert” @orinswift knocks it out of the park with this enormous #redwine Get some! #dcwine #winelover #wineporn #wineaux #dclove #igdc #davephinney #theprisoner #wine #uswine #caliwine #sedc #navyyard #navyyarddc #harrysreserve #wineshop
Remember when The Prisoner tasted like ‘The Prisoner’? The Prisoner was originally made, by rock-star winemaker Dave Phinney. He later sold The Prisoner brand and due to a contractual non-compete clause he has not been able to release a Zinfandel based blend. Well, Dave Phinney is a prisoner no more to Zinfandel blends!

Big box stores may have The Prisoner, but we have bottle number 1 of the 8 planned releases of this very limited production.

He later sold The Prisoner brand and due to a contractual non-compete clause he has not been able to release a Zinfandel based blend. Well, Dave Phinney is a prisoner no more to Zinfandel blends! Big box stores may have The Prisoner, but we have bottle number 1 of the 8 planned releases of this very limited production. @orinswift #orinswift  #zinfandel  #finewine  #onlyatsouthernnapa

***CULT WINE ALERT** 🔥 
We have SOLD out twice! And you keep asking for more. So we have a full case coming.... 🙌🏽 Comment below if you’d like to snag one. 
What is it?! Heady aromas of brambly raspberry, black fig and peppercorn dominate; time in glass exposes more - dark chocolate, fennel and High Sierra forest floor. The palate is lush and opulent with blackberries, dark plums and currants. More flavors add to the quality of the blend - a visceral minerality and fresh Herbs de Provence. Fully integrated with puckering tannins, the wine bows out with finesse.

Wine Arrival!

@orinswift 2017 8 Years in the Desert

A blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah, and small percentages of other red varietals.

#wine #winelover #winenight #orinswift #🍷 #cle #lakewood
After 8 years of not making Zinfandel blends Dave Phinney is back with the Zin driven blend 8 Years in the desert. Orin Swift wines have always been bold and complex, and this wine is no slouch. A blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah and a small percentage of other red varietals. .

Did a tasting with some people for Orin Swift’s “8 Years in the Desert” yesterday... 👌Oh my god, this wine is good. Any Zin lovers or Big Red lovers out there NEED to try this when you see this bottle on a wine list. .

🔥 Come On Baby Light My Fire 🔥 
This 2015 Orin Swift Funeral Pyre (interesting name!) is from @orinswift Equinox Wine Club which is another creative idea from winemaker David Phinney of creating limited edition wines that keeps his followers hooked. Being an Orin Swift fan, I was excited to taste this limited edition wine. 
This full bodied Syrah based blend had a good combination of dark fruit and peppery spice flavors. The use of new oak adds additional flavors of vanilla and baking spices and there is also some minerality on the finish. Tasty! 😋 
Intrigued by the name I looked up the winery notes that said: “With layers of complexity, the wine evolves constantly, peeling back layers and falling deeper into the abyss - akin to Dante's Inferno. - Orin Swift Winery”

Dante's Inferno details Dante's journey through the nine circles of hell so I remain confused as this wine is closer to heaven than hell. 😇 Would somebody from Orin Swift Winery or Dave Phinney himself care to shed light on the the thought process behind the name of this wine? 
Cheers! 🍷

Price: US $110 ( Estimated as I thought it would be impolite to ask the host what it cost. 😳 I think that’s pretty close.) #sammelier #winelover #wineenthusiast #invinoveritas #fridaynightflights #wine #vino #foodandwine #foodies #sommelier #wineandcheese #oenophile #california #friends #family #winemaker #alcohol #cheers #salud #wino #napa #napawines #orinswift #davidphinney ##cabernet #cabernetsauvignon #blend #limitededition #unique

Being at the winery during harvest is so awesome. I miss the smells and sounds and energy of working at a winery. . . . . .  #pinotnoir #zinfandel #sorting #destemming #destemmer #napawine #ilovenapawine #napa #wine #winery #production #orinswift #theranch #theranchwinery
