65% Zinfandel; 28% Cabernet Sauvignon; 7% Merlot. Deeply fruited and redolent of ripe currants, blackberries, briary spice and a wee bit of chocolate, Paraduxx once again strikes out on its own unique path and comes up something more than typical Zin. It is full and fleshy with fine balance and a bit of Cabernet grip, and its very deep, genuinely complex flavors are as long as they are impressively layered. It has a sense of refinement even if it is a touch tannic to finish, and there is no question but that it will improve for four or five years.
Dense inky purple hue. Spicy scents of powdered chocolate, nuts and earth. Dusty entry with spicy terroir notes that showcase raspberry flavors and echoes of walnut and mocha from this unusual blend of zinfandel, cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Rich and coating on the close with ripe berries and oak-laced tannins.
This year the blend is Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. As always, the wine is rich, complex, ageable, and unique among California reds. Zin brings its distinctly briary, wild berry taste to the pedigree of the Bordeaux varieties. The result is a balanced, elegant and refined wine that will stand five to eight years of age. A great accomplishment, with nearly 13,000 cases produced.
