Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2017 Proprietary Red Abstract is made up of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache and Zinfandel, aged eight months in 30% new French and American oak. It has a deep garnet-purple color and features black cherries, fresh black berries and redcurrants with touches of mossy bark, black pepper and garrigue. Full and firm, with a wonderfully rounded texture, it offers loads of black fruit and peppery layers, finishing long and earthy. 38,000 cases produced..January/2019
Orin Swift Abstract Red Blend has bright popping aromatics of juicy raspberries, cranberries and pluots. The wine is big and massive yet incredibly smooth with a hint of sweet cream. With a luscious and velvety mouthfeel, the wine finishes with lingering ripe black plum and fades softly and slowly. Blend of Grenache, Petite Sirah and Syrah from California. From winemaker Dave Phinney.

We thoroughly enjoyed this great red blend…not too heavy on the cabernet side, not too thin. This will be our go-to wine for robust meat dishes, and for that luscious first glass in the evening with a little aged cheese. We loved this one!
