Composed of all five Bordeaux varieties, Papillon is a Cabernet-based red wine. Dark garnet in the glass, this wine is highly aromatic with notes of ripe black cherry, anise, licorice, shaved dark chocolate, rosemary and charred meat. The entry is immense with bright raspberries and fresh cherries, transitioning to a mid-palate of amaretto, sandalwood and hints of high mountain forest and coastal scrub. Textured tannins and notes of toasted coconut round out the palate as the wine finishes with lingering sweet oak.

Wine SpectatorThe initial fruit purity is charming, delivering a smooth entry of crushed dark berry, savory herb, licorice, dusty earth and cedary oak flavors. This hangs and loses velocity as it glides along, revealing more wood and forest floor elements. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2026. 15,000 cases made.
