These labels look like scenes from Machete Kills and the wine inside is equally dangerous! With a nearly opaque, inky color and edgy flavors of cassis, wild blackberry, and mulberry edged out by peppery spice the ‘15 Machete is a thriller, and we can’t keep our hands off it. 

Dominated by the depth of Petite Sirah, winemaker Dave Phinney and his team literally tasted through California to find the best parcels of this dark grape that’s well-known for its deep color and intense tannins. In Machete, he’s turned that idea on its head in a wine that showcases the luxe, sensuous, and fruity side of the grape.

About the wine

There’s so much more to Orin Swift’s tribute to Petite Sirah than its 12 NSFW labels (Yes, there are 12 bootylicious ones to collect!) but what’s inside the bottle is the real showstopper. Sourced from the California’s best Petite Sirah vineyards from Mendocino, Atlas Peak, Alexander Valley and more, this wine doesn’t mess around. Like the action-packed cult Machete movies, this wine twists and turns from aromas of ripe blackberry and cassis to peppery spice, charred meat, and fresh herbs in a single bottle! Full-bodied and smooth across the palate, this wine has a lot to say and will dazzle for the next decade if you can manage to save it.

From one of Vivino’s most popular winemakers, this wine is the next cult classic -- get yours now!

"A great wine with great balance! A big, big, bold California red blend. - Jimmy L.

97 pts - Alex Casella, WSET Advanced  

"Big bold bright purple color with a ruby hue. Lots of bold and luscious dark and red fruits jump out the glass and fill the senses, some floral components, black pepper jam, and oak. This sensual mouthfeel, semi-stern structure, and fragrant spices finish are sure to please the masses. The blending must be meticulous to perform this feat from a CA appellation wine to create such geniality. Pair with an array of hearty cuisine, bring a few bottles to you Summer BBQ and not disappoint your family or friends, or just crush a bottle on your next weeknight couch session."

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:

  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.

Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.

If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.

You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.

Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.
