Winemaker's Notes:

The C Blend was crafted from a core of Cabernet Sauvignon fused with the robust flavors of California's native Zinfandel. The depth and power of Cabernet pairs well with Zinfandel's bright fruit and spice, creating a balanced wine with mouth-filling tannins that will cellar well for years.

The aromas are complex and alluring with layers of sage and dried tobacco leaf wrapped around a chocolate covered cherry core. This wine offers a full, textured mouthfeel, with flavors echoing the aromas. A long, juicy currant finish is underscored by hints of toasted oak and dried herbs.

62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Zinfandel

About Paraduxx:

Paraduxx is an uncommon blend of Zinfandel, California's resident grape, and the classic Bordeaux varietals of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Following in the tradition of "Super-Tuscan" wines of Italy, Paraduxx showcases the excellence of Napa Valley grapes in a unique way. Zinfandel has a history of success in Napa Valley's temperate climate and well-drained soils. We source our Zinfandel fruit from warmer growing regions with mature vines that produce concentrated, flavorful berries.

Paraduxx is an ideal wine to pair with a variety of foods, particularly, traditional Mediterranean-style fare of light pasta dishes and grilled meats. We use French and American oak cooperage for the Zinfandel to accentuate the fruitiness and to add a dimension of toast and vanilla. The Bordeaux varieties are aged in traditional French cooperage.

Paraduxx and Duckhorn Wine Company support conservation of the wetlands of the Pacific flyway.
