About this product

"Papillon is Orin Swift Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet-based Bordeaux blend, proudly consisting of all five of the varietals. Sourced from hand-picked vineyards across the various Napa Valley AVAs, this vintage of Papillon epitomizes the house style at Orin Swift; accessible, powerful and complex. The wine is aged 16 months in French oak, 40% new. The label is a photograph taken by winemaker Greg Gorman. An intense ink with a garnet rim, the wine opens with powerful aromatics of cassis, ripe boysenberry, and chaparral with hints of graphite, sage, fire -roasted meats and fresh brioche. The entry floods the palate with ripe dark fruit flavors of blackberry and black cherries as well as fresh minerality and a touch of kir and crème de menthe. With traces of tannin, the wine finishes with a lingering sweet licorice and a smooth acidity. Overall, this vintage of Papillon truly characterizes the theme bold and massive yet also delicate and complex. Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc Grapes are sourced from Napa Valleys sub-appellations Oakville, Rutherford, and Howell Mountain, including top vineyards such as Stagecoach and Morisoli."
