The wine equivalent of a long distance runner, Orin Swift’s Papillon moves across the palate with stamina and escalating energy, building definition with each new stride.
With all five Bordeaux varietals entering the race, the 2014 trained for 16 months in oak barrels, and offers an endorphin rush of hedonistic delight that will leave a lasting imprint on your taste buds.
It was built from some of Napa Valley’s most iconic vineyard sources, and has already qualified with a stellar 94 Point score from Robert Parker.
Often tightly allocated, Orin Swift’s high-scoring Papillon Blend is a massive wine with extraordinary layers, perpetually changing and evolving in the glass.
Always a front-runner, the 2014 offers intense aromas beginning with melted chocolate, violets, acacia flowers, and espresso that leap from the glass, intermixed with vivid dark berries and baking spice.
If you love rich, unctuous, full-bodied blends, this one is an absolute delight…

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “The 2014 Bordeaux Proprietary Blend Papillion 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.” 94 Points
