Orin Swift Papillon is intense 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. Papillon truly characterizes the theme of a bold and massive wine that is also delicate and complex. Red Blend from Napa, California. From winemaker Dave Phinney.

An inky, dark garnet sits in the glass with bursting aromatics even from afar—ripe blackcurrant and blackberry with hints of Kirsch, Madagascar vanilla and cigar box
