Orin Swift Department 66 13
2013 is of great elegance where the richness of old vine Grenache commands attention. Opaque and dense purple in appearance, the wine brims with spicy blueberry and ripe black currant fruit aromatics. Mighty upon entry, lush red fruits are met with just a hint of creamy, toasty oak. The intensity and concentration of the mid-palate leads to a long finish with hints of wild fennel and garrigue.
