Food Pairings for Orin Swift Papillon Napa Valley
Winemaking phenom David Phinney creates this wine by sourcing several of Napa Valley's most celebrated vineyards on Howell Mountain, Saint Helena, Rutherford, and Oakville. This year's edition is comprised of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot. Based on our tastings, this wine will easily stand up to and outperform many of its counterparts carrying $75 to $100 price tags. The wine has a very dense garnet hue with a slight stain of cardinal on the rim. Aromas of plum and cassis are built around soft French oak and cedar box nuances. The entry is intense, yet elegant with loads of boysenberry and dark fruit flavors. Well integrated tannin chains provide for a long, soft finish.
