Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Color: Dark, deep, vibrant red color.

Nose: Aromas of raspberry, cherry, cedar, spice, caramelized brown sugar, and sweet oak accented by a hint of white pepper.

Palate: Dark cherry and raspberry flavors mingle with rich, compelling layers of blueberry, cedar and molasses. Smooth entry followed by a full mid-palate with integrated nuances of fruit and oak leading to a long finish with balanced resolved tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"As usual, Paraduxx takes its own road and delivers far more than ripe-berry fruit. In this outing, it shows its typical polish and sweet-oak enrichment while keying on a mix of cherries, berries and milk chocolate. It is neither the deepest nor most complex Paraduxx that we can recall, but it is a satisfying and well-balanced wine that will come into its own in but a few years."

My bottle was corked, so disappointed. Half of cork was stained through with wine, must have shipped too hot.
