Bryan Adams’ song, “Cuts Like A Knife” is sort of stuck in my head as I write this post. Orin Swift has done it again. Even though Prisoner broke off and did their own thang, I still compare all Orin Swift wines to the Prisoner because that’s my favorite. That is, until now. Dun, dun, dun!! I can’t believe it! The Prisoner has been my go-to wine for years and I still love it, but after drinking Machete and then a glass of Prisoner next, I found a new love. Sorry Prisoner, it’s not you, it’s me. We will still be close friends, but Machete slashed its way deep into my heart. Ok, enough terrible puns. Let’s get to the meat of it.
The wine is a Petite Sirah. It’s jet black as it goes, glug, glug, glug into the glass and the aromas hit you like an atomic bomb. There’s a perfect combination of BBQ, dark chocolate, tobacco, fig and vanilla. It’s robust, but not too chewy and the finish lingers on the palate forever.
Binny’s sells this for $46. I’m not sure what the story behind the beautiful semi-clothed dame walking around or straddling a car are all about. I do know that not every bottle has the same picture though so double check the label before you buy. Thank you Deb for sharing this wonderful wine with me!
