Description

NAPA VALLEY RED WINE
Composed of all five Bordeaux varieties, Papillon is our Cabernet based red wine. The goal was to make a stand-alone wine that incorporates all the majesty of Cabernet Sauvignon with the subtleties of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, and the power of Petit Verdot and Malbec. The label is a photograph taken by our good friend and fellow winemaker, Greg Gorman.

Tasting Note
An inky, dark garnet sits in the glass with bursting aromatics even from afar-ripe blackcurrant and blackberry with hit of Kirsch, Madagascar vanilla and cigar box. Velvety and rich on entry and through the mid, the wine offers flavors of dark plun, blueverry and notes of fennel, fresh leather and a subtle minerality. Plush, layered and dense, the wine finishes with dusty tannins and a lingering touch of black cherry.

Grapes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah
