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.

The 2017 Papillon Proprietary Red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec, aged for 15 months in oak (43% new). Deep garnet-purple colored, it bursts form the glass with notes of prunes, spiced blackberries and boysenberries with touches of camphor, spice cake and dried leaves. Full-bodied, the palate has a touch of chewiness with a charry undercurrent and rustic finish. 36,560 cases were made.
