Orin Swift used to make and own Prisoner wine until that was sold a few years ago. It doesn’t seem to be hurting their business or image though. With wine names like Trigger Finger, Machete and Slander, these wines have the same sinister, mystique like that of the brooding, sexy loner that you might have secretly lusted after in high school.
Palermo is a blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Malbec. After opening the bottle, you could immediately smell that familiar scent of Napa soil. From the first sip to the last, it was exceptionally smooth with flavors of dark berries, vanilla and all that good stuff that comes from drinking an exceptional California Cab. I pondered with my friend who was kind enough to share this bottle with me if this was Orin Swift’s replacement for Prisoner. I think the only way to find out is to do a blind tasting very soon! Who’s with me?
You can find this at Costco for $37.
