92 points James Suckling
Big and ripe wine, but it shows outstanding tannic backbone and richness. Full body, lots of fruit, but this still shows form. (12/2016)

I tasted three Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines from Orin Swift. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Palermo, all Napa Valley fruit and a blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon with a little Merlot and Malbec, was aged only 10 months in 35% new French oak. Bottled early to accentuate its fruit, this wine has soft, low-acid flavors, plenty of crème de cassis, chocolate and tobacco leaf, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and a long finish. It should drink well for the next 10-15 years, perhaps longer. (RP) (10/2016)
A powerful, explosive mix of extracted dark berry, cedary oak, loamy earth and crushed rock flavors that combine to create a genuine mouthful. Drink now through 2028. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. (JL) (11/2015)
Pairs beautifully with slightly fattier steaks like ribeye and sirloin served rare to medium-rare, a good burger, roast lamb, cheese and portobello mushrooms.
