2017 Orin Swift Cellars Papillon Red, Napa Valley, USA (3L/DOUBLE MAGNUM)
Powerful aromatics escape the glass with rich notes of ripe blackcurrant, blackberry, peppercorn and a touch of chaparral supported by a frame of sweet oak. Intensely layered and decadent on entry, the wine exudes characteristics of black plum, boysenberry, kirsch and dark chocolate with a silky soft yet weighty texture. A prolonged finish of Provençal lavender, fig leaf and ripe currants close out the wine.
A rich, fruity red with jam, light prune and berry character. Full body, round tannins and juicy finish. Big wine. Drink now.
