2020 ORIN SWIFT 8 YEARS IN THE DESERT ZINFANDEL BLEND

$45.00 $45.00

In 2000, Dave Phinney made his first vintage of The Prisoner, a Zinfandel-based red blend that went “viral” and is now a household name after captivating audiences worldwide, offering something different but seriously delicious. In 2008, Dave sold The Prisoner to Huneeus Vintners with an eight-year non-compete agreement to not produce Zinfandel blends under his brand, Orin Swift.

8 Years in the Desert represents the dry spell that Dave agreed to, lasting until 2016 when he proudly introduced his new splendor. Sourcing fruit from a vast collection of top-of-the-line vineyards from California’s most ideal growing regions, this wine is a bold, approachable style layered with complexity and hedonistic fruits.

2020 ORIN SWIFT 8 YEARS IN THE DESERT ZINFANDEL BLEND

"Bright violet in the glass, the 2020 8 Years in the Desert is the epitome of our style, the reason we are even here in the first place. As it’s being poured, the aromatics hit squarely on the nose with a perception of sweetness: pure brambly raspberry juice and blueberry preserves with a hint of white pepper and High Sierra forest floor. Yet, the perceived sweetness on the nose is just that, perceived, and doesn’t carry through to the palate. Lush and enveloping with a beam of acidity, notes of blackberry pie, plum and kirsch flourish. Ultra-round tannins and lingering raspberry, the wine finishes in slow-motion.
