(2013 Vintage) A dense shade of crimson red coats the sides of the glass. Subtle aromas of cedar wood and rose petals mingle with hints of well-seasoned oak. The entry of the wine is seamless and prepares the taster for a broad mid palate saturated with ripe cherry and dark chocolate. The wine finishes with broad and rich tannins that linger on for nearly a minute.
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 .
drank at Khoury's. dry, slight fruit, cherry.
Chocolate oscuro Balanceado y largo
