Our Vineyards Series is a collection of limited-production wines that offer their own inspired variations on the contemporary and innovative style of our Paraduxx red blends. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon paired with Zinfandel originates exclusively from the rocky soils of our Rector Creek Vineyard, which surrounds the Paraduxx winery.

Winemaker Notes
Seamlessly combining Cabernet and Zinfandel from our Rector Creek Estate Vineyard, this stunning wine displays the best attributes of both. On the nose, aromas of strawberry, cherry and black raspberry are underscored by sophisticated hints of dried herbs, leather, cedar and toasted marshmallow. The juicy red berry layers continue on the palate, where silky tannins and soft, inviting acid structure carry the wine to a long spicy plum finish.
Production
The 2014 growing season was our third exceptional vintage in a row, and one of our earliest harvests on record, with our final grapes arriving at the winery on October 14 - almost two weeks earlier than normal. Though the vintage presented drought conditions, perfectly timed spring rains were just what the vines needed to set an excellent crop. After an early budbreak, ideal summer weather allowed us to harvest all of our varieties at optimum ripeness, resulting in wines with alluring aromatics and beautiful fruit complexity.
