Winemaker's Notes:

The aromas are complex and inviting, with lifted red fruit elements of raspberry and plum, as well as deeper bramble fruit notes and layers of vanilla, cream, nutmeg and cinnamon. A smooth, rich entry leads to sweet plum and lingering spice notes, with hints of cedar and clove. The wine's lush texture is supported by resolved tannins that lead to a full, ripe finish.

62% Zinfandel, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot

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.
