Just in at kybecca, the Orin Swift Papillon 2005 from
Papillon is a Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (63%), Merlot, Cab Franc, Petite Verdot and Malbec. Rich and savory with soft layers of dark cherry, ripe sweet plums, anise, toffee, cocoa, rich smoky oak and a hint of truffles on the lush finish. It looks wonderful for tonight or any night over the next several years. At 15.1% alcohol, Papillon is an opulent wine.
