Orin Swift Papillon 2015 1.5L
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Bordeaux Proprietary Blend Papillion (15,748 cases) was aged 16 months in 40% new French oak. Fairly priced for what the consumer gets, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc (15.1% alcohol) exhibits notes of forest floor, graphite, blackcurrant, blackberry fruit and spring flowers followed by a full-bodied, unctuously textured, deep, rich pure wine to drink over the next 10-15+ years.
Wine SpectatorA big, rich and potent style, with layers of flavors extending from black licorice to dark berry, loamy earth, cedar and tobacco. Unfolds impressively on the palate, smooth and effortless. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2029.
