2015 Orin Swift Papillon Red Napa Valley
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 94 Points
Very deep purple-black colored, the 2015 Papillon Proprietary Red features expressive crème de cassis, mulberries, plum preserves and chocolate box notes with wafts of underbrush, dried herbs and Indian spices. Full-bodied, rich, opulent and spicy in the mouth, it has a velvety texture and seamless freshness, finishing long with a lively pepper and herbs lift.
A 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.
