Wine of character is a term often thrown around it seems to me when it appears to be more led by the desire of a marketing team than an actual description of the wine or indeed the winery itself. Here, though, you have the real deal. David Swift Phinney is the man behind what ends up as an unforgettable wine in your glass. The name Orin Swift is actually a combination of his father's middle name and his mother's maiden name.
Drinking well now, but will only get better and better. A blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah and Grenache ensures great complexity.
