K&L Notes

From the makers of the best-selling, high-scoring "Prisoner" comes this brand new Bordeaux blend! It's comprised of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 7% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot. This is not a light and airy butterfly of a wine, but a monumental Papillon like Henri Charriere's classic autobiographical novel. This wine is still relatively unknown (by the critics, that is), catch it before it takes flight!

    From the makers of “The Prisoner” comes “Papillon,” Orin Swift’s first release of a true Bordeaux style blend! Composed from 63% cabernet sauvignon, 19% merlot, 9% cabernet franc, 7% malbec and 2% petit verdot. The wine is fleshy and layered in the mouth with tons of blackberries, crushed cherry and spice flavors that are followed up by sweet, juicy tannins. This is a big cab and is best with some decanting. A perfect match for grilled beef.
