Orin Swift Napa Valley Papillon


    You must be logged in to add tags.

    Color: Dark garnet

    Nose: Smoky, but with great fruit depth of red and black, then some mint and licorice at the end.

    Palate: Not quite integrated yet with the forward oak, but the fruit tannin acidity and mouthfeel is so good that you just know it's going to be great in 2-3 years.

    Color: Darker garnet

    Nose: Very good and plush here with just a hint of smoke now. More loam at the moment and with good wet earth and red/black fruit swirls.

    Palate: Bright fruit medley here from the nose, with smooth tannins, cassis and more of a Bing cherry finish with cassis underneath and great structure.
