The Wine Wire – February 9th, 2012

Hey Cali fans, check out the new releases from Orin Swift.

  • 2010 Orin Swift Cellars “Palermo” Cabernet Sauvignon – A big, inky Cabernet Sauvignon from purchased hillside Napa fruit.  A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, and 4% Cabernet Franc.  Did I mention big?  This ways in at 15.5% alcohol.  Good value at $32.99 btl.
  • 2009 Orin Swift Cellars “Mercury Head” Cabernet Sauvignon – One of the flagship wines of Orin Swift, and certainly their best Cabernet from select lots.  Primarily coming from the Morisoli and Taplin Vineyards, this is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon with 5% Merlot.  A pretty big monster that can be let out of the cage now, but will age over a decade.  $75.99 btl.
