  2013 Orin Swift 'Papillon' Proprietary Red Napa Valley

Images

2013 is one of the finest growing seasons in the Napa Valley that we can remember, one that Robert Parker called "the Greatest Vintage I've Tasted in 37 Years Visiting Northern California." That's pretty unequivocal praise. The season played right into Dave Phinney's hands: his "Papillon" Proprietary Red is a barnburner: ripe, decadent, beautifully perfumed Cabernet, blended with Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cab Franc, and Malbec. Lay in a 6-pack or a case for your cellar and prepare to have your world rocked in the best way.

The Orin Swift story is the result of a young winemaker's vision to blend whatever the hell he wanted together because the finished product was the ultimate goal. Cab and Zin? Throw in some Petite Sirah and who knows what else? Sure...why not? Well, guess what? It's like a band being told that they're nuts for throwing a trumpeter into a rock act and all of a sudden they're selling out stadiums. No one can deny what Dave Phinney and his team have accomplished with their brand.
 
From regular appearances on Wine Spectator's 'Top 100' list (for 'The Prisoner') to a mind-boggling level of consumer demand, this is a producer we've been touting for awhile. Dave and his crew continue to elevate their game with each new release, and, frankly,their wines have never been more popular. They're yours for the taking.
