Winemaker's Notes:

Luxurious, rich and concentrated aromas of black cherry, currant and blueberry are just the start of this 2007 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. The harmonious flavors of black cherry, anise and plush cassis explode through your mouth. This classic Napa Valley Estate Cabernet is elegant and wonderful young but also has everything it needs to age beautifully.

Winemaker's Notes:

Powerful scents of boysenberry, cherry liqueur, licorice and dark chocolate. Chewy dark berry compote and bitter cherry flavors are underscored by strong mineral, smoke and licorice qualities. Sweet and gently tannic on the finish but not at all hard.

Additional wines from Ravenswood:

About Ravenswood:

Fueled initially by the inspiration and winemaking skills of Joel Peterson, aided and abetted by his business partner W. Reed Foster, Ravenswood winery has been dedicated to top quality, hand-crafted wine since the first crush in 1976. Every Ravenswood wine carries a unique vintage and vineyard identity in addition to the intense powerful – gothic – character with which the winery has come to be associated.

A key to Ravenswood’s success is our long-standing relationships with over 60 independent grape growers. Vineyards are chosen for their location, age, yield and special flavor characteristics. At Ravenswood, we are devoted to working with growers who share our philosophy about high quality.

Ravenswood Vineyard Designate wines are made employing what winemaker Joel Peterson refers to as “stubborn and impractical” Old World enological practices. Wines are fermented in small wooden tanks using wild, natural yeasts and punched down by hand three to five times per day. The wines are characterized by intense, spicy aromas supported by rich, berry flavors and long, clean finishes.

Winemaker's Notes:

Dense color with a red cherry hue Aromas of plum, chocolate and cherry pie accentuated by hints of violet, clove, cinnamon spice and vanilla bean. Bright red fruit flavors of Bing cherry, strawberry and raspberry, contrasted by dark and compelling layers of blueberry, mocha and molasses. Great structure with smooth, fine tannins, a black pepper mid-palate and long nutmeg and red currant finish.

Blend: 64% Zinfandel, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc.

Additional wines from Paraduxx:

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.
