Orin Swift's new juice
Orin Swift's Palermo
When it comes to the wine industry, there are many things for people of all different interests to become overly enthusiastic about. Great vintages, +90 rated wines, reviews, USDA certifications, the list goes on for why people get so enthralled to see what's new and what's hot in the business of vitis vinifera. For me honestly, there is only one thing that is done domestically, that makes it feel like Christmas in July... the news of a new release from my favorite producer: Orin Swift. At home, my cellar is composed primarily of Spanish, French, New Zealand, and Australian wines some ready to drink, some needing another 5-10years... but amongst the wines found in my collection there generally is only one domestic producer found. From Mercury Head to Papillon, their fascinating portfolio of wines have always intrigued me, bold blends matched with equally bold flavors, always encompassed in beautiful presentation, these wines are wines never to be missed. So with the new release Palermo, I was eager as could be to explore another Orin Swift creation.
