8 Years in The Desert Wine

8 Years in the Desert

Being stranded in a desert leaves a lot to be desired — how to get back home, where to find food, water and shelter, and thoughts of survival. For eight years in the early 2010s, Orin Swift Cellars was barred from making any Zinfandel wines. From the grape that started everything OSC, the ‘desert’ gave us an opportunity to explore the diverse range of California’s grape varietals. But, as soon as those eight years were up, we had a plan in place to pay homage to our home.

September Release

Orin Swift Abstract red blend

ABSTRACT

One of many definitions of the word, abstract, is a summary of something larger, encompassing the crucial elements, making it easy to comprehend on the fly. Abstract, in its own way, is an abstract of our winemaking mission and the ethos of Orin Swift. It will always have our signature drinkability, comprised of fruit from quality vineyards across California and creates conversations — be it about the wine or the label. For those new to Orin Swift, Abstract is a beloved starting point on a journey with us.

October Release 

Orin Swift Burnt Sacrifice Bottle shot.

BURNT SACRIFICE

In 2019 we forged a partnership with the Napa Valley Community Foundation to help our community rebuild after devastating wildfires. We were overwhelmed, humble and deeply proud how you, the Orin Swift family, responded. As we learn to adapt with our region and climate, we’ve decided to change things a bit and release the 2020 Burnt Sacrifice as a unique cuvee of Pinot Noir, sourced from prestigious regions across California.

December Release 

Orin Swift China Doll Wine

CHINA DOLL

China Doll is an unorthodox approach to Rosé, as this varietal is a wine usually associated with more feminine thoughts. The doll itself was procured by our winemaker and creative director, Dave Phinney, from a local oddities shop in Berkeley that specializes in natural science and all things once living.  Since the inception of this wine in 2014, this has grown to be a fan favorite.

May Release

Orin Swift Double Take horizontal bottle shot.

DOUBLE TAKE

In 2018 we asked you to choose your favorite out of “Double” or “Take” and you delivered resulting in our Orin Swift Merlot — Double Take! Starting in the vineyard, most of the blend comes from Stagecoach Vineyard on Atlas Peak with a small amount from the Lewelling Vineyard in St. Helena. It’s not your average Merlot; so much so that when you first take a sip, you’ll take a second look.

August Release 

Orin Swift Face Value horizontal bottle shot.

FACE VALUE

The price of a bottle of wine doesn’t always reflect its value. Gifts, anniversaries or special occasions can add value to a bottle. At Orin wift, we realize that what we do would not be possible without our team. As a results, we decided to pay homage to our team in a way that adds value to each bottle. Comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from across the state, this wine is a tribute to what makes us successful.

October Release

Orin Swift Firebent Chardonnay

FIREBENT

Firebent is a reminder that obsessing over every detail in the process is the best way to get somewhere new. With this Napa Valley Chardonnay, we got back to basics. Exceptional fruit from the iconic Stagecoach Vineyard in the Atlas Peak AVA, barrel fermented and aged sur lie for  nine months in firebent French Oak. A little heat and pressure can be a good thing.

June Release 

Orin Swift Mannequin Chardonnay

MANNEQUIN

The most widely planted white wine grape in California, Chardonnay is expressed in many different styles due to the state’s varied regions. Each lot expresses where it comes from — some are acid-forward and mineral-focused, while others are robust, ripe and fruit-forward. Featuring vineyards located in the Russian River Valley, Atlas Peak and Santa Maria Valley — Mannequin is our manifestation of California Chardonnay.

February Release

Orin Swift Machete Wine

MACHETE

The baddest wine of them all, Machete takes no prisoners. The tannins remind you what it’s like to feel, and the ink will put a smile on your face. Our simple goals with machete was to elevate Petite Sirah to the main stage and let it express its own attitude. Robust, dominant and unapologetic, the wine creates its own gravity, pulling all towards it with vintage after vintage resulting in a stellar blend of Petite Sirah, Syah and Grenache.

April Release 

Orin Swift Mercury Head wine

MERCURY HEAD

Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon is our flagship wine and emphasizes our guiding principle: Without quality grapes, great wine is impossible. It comes from the best lots from very select vineyards in Napa Valley and the wine is a testament to those vineyards, to our principle and to what is possible in Napa Valley. The Liberty Dime on each bottle symbolizes Dave’s favorite coin in his collection growing up and his most prized possession.

May Release

Orin Swift Palermo horizontal bottle shot.

PALERMO

With three Bordeaux-style wines in the OSC portfolio, our goal with every lot of Napa Cab is to treat each as if destined for Mercury Head. From the valley floor to the mountain tops, we source fruit that expresses individual terrior and produce individuals lots that have a sense of place.  Through trials, we focus on putting together a wine that represents the broad spectrum of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon year after year.

February Release 

Orin Swift Papillon Wine

PAPILLON

It’s rare to find a wine from the Napa Valley composed of all five Bordeaux-style varietals. But, for many years, that has been Papillon’s focus. The raw strength and prestige of Cabernet Sauvignon buttressed by the opulence of Merlot, the spiciness of Cabernet Franc, the depth of Malbec and the sheet unctuousness of Petit Verdot come together seamlessly.

April Release

Orin Swift Scattered Stones Red Blend

SCATTERED STONES

Stagecoach Vineyard has been foundational to Orin Swift since we started; it’s one of the first growers we partnered with. From Trigger Finger to our iconic Mercury Head, they’ve been with us for many of our favorites. In 2022, the fruit was so impressive we decided to create a vineyard-designated wine for the first time in over a decade. The blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Grenache highlights the true potential of Stagecoach.

June Release 

Orin Swift Slander horizontal bottle shot.

SLANDER

Staying humble and letting the grapes do the talking is how we get better at winemaking every vintage. Pinot Noir requires even more humility, especially in the vineyards — when the grapes are ready, they’re ready. Requiring a gentler approach with punchdowns rather than pumpovers, Pinot Noir expresses itself when it is lead manipulated. Slander is the union of California Pinot Noir made in the Orin Swift signature style delivering a bold and expressive wine.

October Release

Orin Swift Trigger Finger horizontal bottle shot.

TRIGGER FINGER

Growing in popularity of late, Grenache is experiencing something many have been behind already for years, decades, centuries. The most versatile grape by far, Grenache has been hidden in blends, playing second fiddle to other varietals. But every vintage, we strive to produce a wine that is unabashadly Grenache — and just how we like it.

February Release 

Orin Swift Veladora

VELADORA

Our Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, Veladora is a small production wine that showcases fruit from one of our favorite vineyards, Solari in Calistoga. Whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented, we’re able to produce a wine that develops a complexity that only comes from contact with oak. A quintessential Sauvignon Blanc and perfect pairing for those long summer days.

July Release

Orin Swift You Go First sparkling wine

YOU GO FIRST

You Go First is a dare, an encouragement, and an invitation. It’s a sudden hit of nostalgia, unexpectedly triggered. Schoolyard games, hopping fences, trying a new good, bad thing. It’s having an accomplice that holds the door while you make a run for it. You Go First is that feeling, bubbles and all. A reminder to stay in the present, and stick with people who get you slightly outside your comfort zone.
