The 2016 Papillon Proprietary Red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot & Malbec, aged for 15 months in 45% new French oak. It has a deep garnet-purple color & features exuberant black & red plums, cassis & boysenberry scents with touches of pencil shavings, mossy bark & cast iron pan. Medium to full-bodied, firm & finely grained, it has a seamless structure supporting the elegantly played fruit, finishing on a lingering menthol note. 9,250 cases produced.
"An inky, dark garnet sits in the glass with bursting aromatics even from afar—ripe blackcurrant and blackberry with hints of Kirsch, Madagascar vanilla and cigar box. Velvety and rich on entry and through the mid, the wine offers flavors of dark plum, blueberry 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." - Winery
