Still not bottled at the time I tasted it, the 2021 Papillon Red Wine is a five-variety Bordeaux blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot) that spends 13 months in 44% new oak. While not that complex, it does offer up bold cherry and cassis aromas on the nose, while the palate is full-bodied and velvety, with a long, almost zesty finish. Best After 2024

James Suckling: 90 Points

Lots of delicious, juicy fruit with spices and berries. Medium to full body, affective, fresh and clean, but a little straightforward.

Fruit fans will dig this for its open and inviting display of açaí berry, plum sauce and warmed cassis aromas and flavors, all laced with melted black licorice and given a light mocha cloak on the broad, polished finish. A subtle savory tobacco element in the background adds a counterpoint, but this is aimed squarely at the hedonist crowd. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc.

Red Blend

Red blend wines are a versatile category in which winemakers artfully combine various red grape varieties to produce wines with a diverse and harmonious flavor profile. By blending grapes with different characteristics, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and others, winemakers can create wines that balance fruitiness, acidity, tannins, and other elements. This flexibility allows for a broad spectrum of styles, ranging from easy-drinking and approachable blends to more complex and structured ones. Red blends often showcase the winemaker's skill in achieving a desired flavor and texture, offering wine enthusiasts a delightful exploration of the interplay between different grape varietals. The composition of red blends can vary, not only between different wine regions but also among individual wineries, making them a fascinating category for both winemakers and wine enthusiasts alike.
