Below is the September, 2009 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:

2007 Orin Swift Cellars

"The Prisoner"

Napa Valley, California

 

Orin Swift Cellars "The Prisoner"Named for his parents, Orin and Swift, Orin Swift Cellars is the realization of a dream for Dave Phinney that began while he was studying abroad at the University of Florence in Florence, Italy.

The enterprise began with two tons of purchased Zinfandel grapes and has continued to grow over the years, adding Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc to the program, as well as streamlining the Zinfandel into what is now their flagship wine, "The Prisoner." It is the centerpiece of a 20,000 case production portfolio of wines, and ended up as #17 on the Wine Spectator Top 100 list of wines (for the 2005 vintage). In addition, Phinney recently purchased 48 acres of raw land in the hills above Oakville and hopes to someday build a winery there.

The 2007 vintage blends the lush berry flavors of Zinfandel (50%), the power and concentration of Cabernet Sauvignon (24%), the dark black fruit of Syrah (14%), the intensity and structure of Petite Sirah (9%), the flesh of Charbono (2%), and a hint of Grenache (1%) - all combined for a decadent wine with great complexity.

Aromas of white pepper and black fruit fill the glass. Flavors of wild blackberry, currant, licorice, and blueberry lead the way in this fruit forward wine. Plenty of spice and lingering tannins on the finish. Well structured and, despite the fact that it clocks in at 15.2% alcohol, itís easy to drink now, but will reward patience in the cellar.

This wine is a great candidate for grilled meats of all kinds.
