Pictured on the label is a grower's hands with the winemaker's daughter's first French word tattooed across the fingers. An intense, dark ink hue with a garnet rim, the wine opens with rich aromatics of cassis, ripe boysenberry and chaparral with hints of graphite, sage, fire-roasted meats and fresh brioche. The entry floods the palate with ripe dark fruit flavors of blackberry and black cherries as well as fresh minerality and a touch of kir and crème de menthe. With traces of tannin, the offers a a lingering, sweet licorice finish and smooth acidity. Overall, this vintage of Papillon truly characterizes the theme—bold and massive yet also delicate and complex.
