Our Vineyard 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. Grown in the rocky soils of our Rector Creek Vineyard, which surrounds the Paraduxx winery, this alluring blend balances the Bing cherry and herbes de Provence elements of the coveted Cabernet Franc from our Block 5, with the raspberry jam and white pepper character of great Zinfandel.

Wine Profile

Production Notes
Blend Composition:100% estate fruit - 60% Cabernet Franc, 40% Zinfandel
Winemaker Notes
On the nose, this radiant red blend showcases layers of vibrant fruit and spice, with notes of red cherry, cranberry and currant mingling with aromas of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and freshly roasted coffee beans. The juicy red berry notes are echoed on the broad, mouth-filling palate, with hints of black pepper, saddle leather, cocoa and graphite adding depth and nuance to a long, delicious finish.
Production
In Napa Valley, a mild spring and summer, with no significant heat events, pushed the beginning of harvest back a full four weeks from our average start date. In addition to providing abundant hangtime, the temperate weather ensured that the fruit was able to preserve excellent natural acidity. Because the cool weather continued into autumn, we were able to assess and pick each block at ideal ripeness. One of the most noteworthy elements of the growing season was the fact that the grapes were able to develop beautiful, fully ripe flavors, at lower Brix. As a result, the wines are both elegant and complex, with excellent energy and acidity, and lovely varietal character.
