Wine Details


Orin Swift



Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Bright, ruby red in complexion, the wine bursts with a lively perfume of crushed boysenberry, spring flowers, crème de cassis, and a hint of toast. Upon entry, lush flavors of blackberry tart and ripe plum lead to a juicy mid-palate mix of currant, mocha and dark chocolate. Already well-integrated, polished tannins are present on the finish, which linger effortlessly with just the right amount of power and intensity.

    I have nothing to say but admiration for the Orin Swift production of Papillion ( big brother of "Prisoner" a stellar cabernet from the previously mentioned ). A glorious example of a Napa cab., superbly balanced, all round palate pleaser. An abundance of subtle blackberry, current & caramelized notes , yet not over-powering .!!! Bravo ...!!! Decant a hr., or two..and let the romance begin .
