Dark garnet in the glass, this wine is highly aromatic with notes of ripe black cherry, anise, licorice, shaved dark chocolate, rosemary and charred meat. The entry is immense with bright raspberries and fresh cherries, transitioning to a mid-palate of amaretto, sandalwood and hints of high mountain forest and coastal scrub. Textured tannins and notes of toasted coconut round out the palate as the wine finishes with lingering sweet oak.
Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, & Cabernet Franc.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Orin Swift Cellars Papillon is a robust red blend of Bordeaux grape varieties. TASTING NOTES: This wine doesn't hold back. Its strength navigates nicely through the palate and into the finish. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers excellent complexity and length on the palate. Enjoy its aromas and flavors of ripe red berries and savory spices with a well-seasoned oven-baked chuck roast. (Tasted: November 8, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
