Solid juice, nose is absolutely beautiful but I felt my expectations never materialized on the palate the way I wanted. Still, solid bottle from a nice producer.

This wine rocks. Though this is usually one of my two favorite Orin Swift wines (w/ Palermo), I was very pleasantly surprised by the 2013 Papillon. I get mint and espresso and oak followed by dark fruit and a little chocolate. And if you know anything about me, I pretty much love all of those notes, so it is no surprise that I love this wine. Surprisingly approachable right now, or drink over next couple years.

WOW! Needs a good 45 minutes to breathe.,opens up with gobs of black fruits. Great texture and body. Really expressive with that little time I left in my glass. I find this 2013 to be way Superior to the 2012! Go figure! Orin Swift Papillon does it again, Dave P. You are the Man! Awesome , CB says a solid 95

Heavy on the palate, high alcohol from the valley floor of Napa. Good wine here, needs to aerate for quite some time but once it opens up lots of rich flavor.

Needed a day or two to open up, extremely complex, incredible wine but very specific. Not as velvety as say a caymus or cakebread but still fantastic.
