Orin Swift Papillon Napa Valley 2008
The wine has a deep red color with a garnet hue that is almost black. The aromas are of classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with cedar box, rose petal and hints of soft French oak. The entry is subtle ripe raspberry and boysenberry. Loads of cherry, plum and intense cassis frame long chains of soft tannins that form a long and lingering finish. 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc. Alcohol 15.1%.
External Reviews for Orin Swift Papillon Napa Valley
The color of the wine is deep garnet with an opaque red tinge. It has aromas of opulent black fruits (cassis, blackberries, black cherries) and a touch of well-integrated, sweet oak. The entry of the wine is soft and lush; it sets up the wide yet well defined mid palate. Dark fruit flavors combined with ripe tannins lead into a long and soft finish.
