Ratings/Reviews

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 90+ Points (2007 vintage):
"The 2007 Papillon is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest other Bordeaux varietals. It exhibits supple, sweet tannin in addition to lush black cherry and black currant fruit, cedar, toasty new oak, and spice box. The finish suggests that the wine is still somewhat restrained and closed, but promising. It should evolve for 15 or more years. This is an innovative project from owner/winemaker Dave Phinney. The winery’s name comes from the names of his parrots." (Dec/2009)

Wine Spectator Magazine (2005 vintage):
"Well-structured, elegant and stylish, with spicy, cedary currant and black cherry fruit that has a dusty edge, with a touch of mineral. Ends with gentle, fine-grained tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2009 through 2015. 5,500 cases made." –JL (Oct/2008)
