    Winemaker's Notes:

    Dense color with a red cherry hue Aromas of plum, chocolate and cherry pie accentuated by hints of violet, clove, cinnamon spice and vanilla bean. Bright red fruit flavors of Bing cherry, strawberry and raspberry, contrasted by dark and compelling layers of blueberry, mocha and molasses. Great structure with smooth, fine tannins, a black pepper mid-palate and long nutmeg and red currant finish.

    Blend: 64% Zinfandel, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This deep, impressively extracted version of this perennial CGCW favorite marries well-defined blackberry fruit with a layer of ripe currants, a good dose of sweet oak and touches of milk-chocolate. Its sense of layered richness and it accents of sweet earth speak to classic Napa Valley character, and, thanks to its provenance, its unique mix of grapes and the attention that the Duckhorn folks pay to it, it continues to be a more sophisticated wine than Zinfandel typically yields.

    Zin and Cab? That's weird, no? However, this seemingly unnatural union is working for Paraduxx. Red blends are where I tend to find my favorite wines - think Bordeaux and the Rhone, and forget Pinot Noir exists for moment. This wine is supple, rich and goes on and on, and better still I have no issue opening it immediately, It's ready now. It's my - I desperately need an awesome wine for dinner tonight, not in 2015 - wine.

    Fantastic blend of Zinfandel and Cabernet from some of Duckhorn's top vineyards. Unique, tasty, and ageworthy (up to 10 years according to the winemaker).

    I find this to be bold, yet, refined with layers of flavors. You should taste it for yourself.
