Winemaker's Notes

From the first smell, this wine is open and enticing. Beautiful aromas of ripe berries and toasty spicy oak. Soft and silky across the palate with classic Paradigm finesse. Flavors are of ripe black cherry, blackberry, cedar and sweet vanilla. Rich and lush in the mouth with lots of flavor and elegance. The wine is very enjoyable right now and will last 10 years or more. - Heidi Peterson Barrett, Winemaker

Critical Acclaim

"Root-beer-like sweetness and hints of toasted marshmallows sit to the side of comparatively cramped fruit in the nose here, yet the wine comes across quite well on the palate with a full flush of Cabernet currants to balance its oak. Grabby tannins and a bit of palpable heat follow on the heels of its supple beginnings, yet, while wanting for polish and not certain to find it with age, it has the richness to work with well-seasoned roasts and simply grilled steaks."
