Papillon - 2017

Papillon - 2017

This is a very robust, tannic, and aromatic red wine. The Tannat provides structure and acidity while the Petit Verdot offers a spice and pepper character. 11 months age in only 10% new barrels provides additional structure and a hint of oak sweetness (not sugar) while still letting the fruit be dominant. It has prominent black berry fruit on the nose and palate with a nice substantial tannin structure. For the 2016 vintage, the prominent acidity is evident which will allow this wine to age for many years.

Food Pairing Notes
Papillon will pair with red meats that are well caramelized from grilling or roasting and accompanied by a red-wine based sauce. Broccoli raab, hazelnuts, garlic, kalamata olives, lemon juice and pepper to taste will make for a great salad to start. Beans, sausage, duck confit will make a great cassoulet for the main course. For dessert, Triple Chocolate Cheesecake is a good choice.
