Orin Swift Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

SKU 04174


Deep and luring aromas of raspberry and ripe cherry are intermingled with accents of star anise, five spice and freshly steeped black tea. The entry is smooth with a combination of cassis and blackberry with a satiating suppleness. Ultra round and soft, the wine finishes with reverberating length.

Wine AdvocateMedium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon (mainly Cabernet Sauvignon with splashes of Merlot and Malbec) opens with notions of crushed red currants, blackberries and mulberries with touches of Indian spices, sandalwood and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a wonderfully spicy undercurrent with loads of red and black fruits and a chewy frame, finishing long and perfumed.

Wine SpectatorPure and spicy, with a firm core of creamy, oak-laced dark berry, licorice, currant and blackberry flavors, firming on the finish. A style that will appeal to those who like to chew on their wines. Drink now through 2024.
