Winemaker's Notes:

Paraboll is bright ruby color with alluring aromas of black raspberry, cola, potpourri, star anise and minerals. Silky, pliant and sweet, with concentrated, expressive flavors of red and dark berries, floral pastilles and mocha. Offers palate-staining depth with no excess weight thanks to tangy acidity and pronounced spiciness. Tannins come on late, adding shape to the sappy, long finish. This should age well but it drinks nicely now.
My Notes:

About Londer Vineyards:

Londer Vineyards is located approximately 120 miles north of San Francisco, in the southwestern corner of California's Mendocino County. The blanket of fog that ordinarily curls up from the coast most summer nights and then burns off during the warm dry sunny days allow the vineyards to produce grapes that slowly develop and ripen. Londer Vineyards is one of the coolest of the state's so-called cool-climate wine regions. This is ideal for growing varietals such as Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer, and Chardonnay.
