Orin Swift Machete

(Labels Are Different)

The dark red complexion and and opaqueness of Orin Swift Machete leave a dark image to the imagination when you first set your eyes on a glass of deep crimson wine. The scents of sweet blueberries and candied plum entwine themselves with hints of roasted vanilla and toasted oak for an inviting aroma. Aromas of aromatic violets and Earl Grey tea take you across the pond to England. The first sip brings juicy blackberries fresh off the vine along with tinges of velvety cassis. Excellent with a pasta layered with a hearty bolognese sauces, roasted venison and root vegetables, or a rich chocolate torte.

Imagine the scent of fragrant violets mixed with clean and earthy mountain scents as you pour a glass of Orin Swift Machete. With earthy and brambly notes you are introduced to flavors of sweet berries, juicy black cherries, and comforting mocha. Perfect with roasted venison or leg of lamb.
