93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Zinfandel Blend 8 Years in the Desert delivers notions of stewed plums, baked raspberries and fruitcake with hints of powdered cinnamon, clove oil, tree bark, hoisin and dusty soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of ripe, spicy black and red fruits, supported by chewy tannins and tons of freshness, finishing long and earthy.

The 2019 Orin Swift Cellars 8 Years in the Dessert #3 comes to the party to stay. This wine offers aromas and flavors of black fruit and licorice. Serve it a well-seasoned, oven-baked Porchetta. (Tasted: July 18, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Winemaker Notes

Evolving aromatics present themselves first with black and white pepper, then a ripe fruit core of brambly raspberry and sweet persimmon, finishing with savory notes of allspice, clove and fig leaf. Boisterous yet elegant on entry, the wine shows its plush layers with distinctive strawberry preserves, blackberry and raspberry pie topped with fresh crème. Round, ripe tannins close the palate menacingly with well-integrated acidity and enduring energy.

Zinfandel, Syrah, and Petite Sirah
