Our Winemaker Don LaBorde, first fell in love with the wines from Alexander Valley’s acclaimed Ridgeline Vineyard years ago. A dramatic, high-elevation hillside vineyard, Ridgeline is ideal both for Cabernet Sauvignon and for Tempranillo, which is why it was chosen as the source for this alluring Sonoma County Red Blend. Inspired by the iconic blends of Spain, this robust, full-bodied red combines the vivid violet and white pepper qualities of exceptional Tempranillo with the depth and richness of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wine Profile

Production Notes
Composition: 60% Tempranillo, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon; Cooperage: 100% French oak - 50% new, 50% second vintage
Winemaker Notes
Ridgeline Vineyard has yielded a lush and inviting wine with aromas of mixed berry cobbler, violets and fresh-cracked pepper. The alluring berry notes continue on the palate where flavors of ripe blueberry and tart raspberry are underscored by seamlessly balanced tannins that add richness and depth throughout.
Production
2016 was an incredibly successful harvest for Paraduxx. Starting on August 15th with our Rector Creek Estate Viognier and ending on October 20th with perfectly ripened Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, the season was seamless. Overall, we harvested 15 different grape varieties from 14 different Napa Valley appellations. The growing season was filled with warm sunny days, intermittent cool weeks, and no rain events to speak of—all of which were ideal for achieving perfect ripeness with good natural acidity. Overall, there is a lovely elegance to our 2016 wines, with soft, velvety tannins and ripe, impeccably balanced berry flavors.
