Blended from five varietals - Petite Sirah, Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenach - this is a wine of absolute power and depth. Lovely layers of black cherry, plum and blackberry with hints of cocoa and coffee. Toasty oak and firm tannins are the backbones of this complex wine and give it is long, concentrated finish.

The 'Machete' by Orin Swift was first produced in 2009. This wine is a compelling blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah and Grenache, this inky hued wine was aged 10 months in French oak (40% new) prior to bottling. Weighing in at a whopping 15.7% alcohol and needing more than an hour to express itself, as it is aromatically reticent at first, the wine gradually yields deep aromas reminiscent of rose petals, tar, pipe tobacco, coffee grounds and blueberry compote.
