Orin Swift Abstract 2016
Plump and appealingly gamy, with black raspberry, smoky beef and cracked pepper flavors that take on depth toward big but polished tannins. Grenache, Syrah and Petite Sirah. Drink now through 2023.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Proprietary Red Abstract (composed of Syrah, Petite Sirah and Grenache) leaps from the glass with notes of raspberry preserves, kirsch and potpourri with touches rose hips, cinnamon stick and tar. Medium to full-bodied with a lovely plush texture and tons of spicy red fruit, it finishes with a peppery lift.
