The Orin Swift Abstract is a red wine blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah and Grenache. Abstract is the epitome of complexity through geographic diversification. The wine, like the label, is a collage of many different parts and pieces. Fruit is sourced from multiple vineyards, in multiple appellations, throughout the state. This not only allows us Orin Swift to create a style but maintain consistency from year to year. The label is over 230 individual images collected over many years, assembled over a four-week period. The wine, like the label, starts with over 200 pieces, whittled down over the course of a few months during multiple marathon tastings—not all of which made the blend. Resulting is a wine representative of the Golden State.

This wine is bursting with juicy red and dark fruits (raspberries, cranberries, dark plums). On the palate, the wine is voluptuous in body yet incredibly smooth with similar fruit notes and a touch of sweet vanilla. With a luscious and velvety mouthfeel, the wine finishes with lingering ripe black plum notes and a long length.
