Orin Swift 2014 Machete

2014 Machete Red Wine has Arrived! ORIN SWIFT 2014 MACHETE RED WINE An opaque, purple chroma is brilliantly on display in the glass. An alluring fragrance of bright floral notes, violet juxtaposed with intriguing mountain characteristics. The entry is big, dark, and brooding with concentrated berry flavors, black cherry, mocha, and delightful earthy, brambly notes. Soft and lush, the tannins are sublime which offsets a pleasing mineral finish. 12 DIFFERENT LABELS per CASE!  PERFECT for a GIFT or COLLECTORS! $49.99 BUY NOW #6 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2016 A nearly opaque color sets in the glass with a hard, red complexion that is almost black. Aromas of ripe blueberries and candied plum mingle with toasted oak and charred vanilla. The entry is soft and inviting which paves the way for a lush mid-palate replete with layers of ripe boysenberry and cassis. The finish showcases ripe tannins and pronounced fruit which frames the two for nearly a minute. 94 Points, Wine Spectator “Generous and expressive, big and brawny, offering a mouthful of tannins but also brimming with flavors and aromas, including Earl Grey tea, dark chocolate, dried violet and toasted gingerbread. Rich notes of plum and black cherry are balanced by forest floor and earthy accents, lingering on the long finish. Petite Sirah, Syrah and Grenache. Drink now through 2030.” Dave Phinney is one of the most influential and innovative winemakers in California.

Ten great new wines, fresh on our shelves! 1) Underwood Rose 375ml Cans $6.99 – Canned wines are exploding! They’re convenient, go anywhere packages that preserve the freshness and flavors of the wine better and more consistently that any other package. Underwood’s new Rose is here and is dangerously drinkable. Fruity strawberry, watermelon and peach flavors balanced by vibrant acidity. Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir also in stock & $6.99 each. 2) Venge 2014 Penny Lane Vineyard Sangiovese $37.99 – Kirk Venge’s 2014 reds are nothing short of extraordinary and his tiny production Sangiovese is no exception. We just received the last handful of bottles of the minuscule amount that was allocated for retail shelves this year. Notes of strawberries, black cherries, new saddle leather, bay leaf, and pepper. Ripe, with excellent fruit, medium body, and no hard edges. 3) Peirano Estate 2015 Illusion Red $12.99 – We’ve almost sold through our first batch of this delicious new wine from the Peirano family, and in record time (but don’t worry, more arriving on Thursday). A juicy blend of Zinfandel, Merlot, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate explodes with rich mouthfilling blackberries, black currants, plums and dark fruit. The long, seductive finish is filled with hints of black licorice and has firm, round, yet supple mouthfilling tannins. 4) Domaine Houchart 2016 Provence Rose $12.99 – Without a doubt, the Domaine Houchart is one of the best value Provence Roses each year.
