OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE PINOT NOIR
About the wine: For the first time in years, Dave Phinney (proprietor and lead winemaker) of Orin Swift has released an inaugural vintage from a new parcel of land. This is the only project in the United States where Dave makes wine from a vineyard he owns – purchased in 2015. In his own words, “the abandoned row crop farm on the western edge of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA, known for its sandy, silica-rich, diatomaceous earth soils and cool, windy climate produces Pinot Noir and Chardonnay unlike anywhere.” After over seven years of hard work planting Our Lady of Guadalupe, Dave and his team decided to start a new brand focused exclusively on producing from this vineyard – known fondly as “OGL.” We are excited to introduce the 2021 vintage – the first of years to come.
Notes from the winemaker: A fluorescent ruby core and a flashing vermilion rim pour into the glass gracefully. Immediate aromatic complexities abound, rife with notes of black cherry, hibiscus, rose petal, a touch of strawberry, caramel apple and confectioner’s chocolate. The entry dances across the palate with framboise, pomegranate and baking spices, enhanced by the soft texture and ripples of acidity. The piquant finish continues the flow of energy as the acid brings together notes of amaro and black cherry, yet again.
