Winemaker Notes

The 2014 vintage produced some delicious rich wines and this deeply colored Cab is no exception. The aromas are enticing and open, showing ripe fruit, complexity, and layers of refined French Oak. This is a very expressive complete wine that will age beautifully. Mouth-coating flavors of black cherry, currant, and blackberry followed by chewy tannins lead to an overall palate feel that is delicious. With perfect balance and ripeness, this is a stellar vintage.

Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Smooth, youthful and concentrated, this wine offers earthy graphite and tobacco around a midpalate of well-developed, lively acidity and fresh black fruit. Tenacious in oak and tannin, it needs time to develop further; enjoy best 2024–2029.

COMMENTARY: Ever since I first tasted the Paradigm wines several years ago, I immediately become enamored by the wine's concentrated yet elegant and polished style. The 2014 Paradigm Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent example of refined Oakville style. TASTING NOTES: This wine is more concentrated than I have found the wines in previous vintages. Its aromas and flavors of red and black fruit with an accent oak should pair it well with a juicy grilled ribeye. (Tasted: September 17, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Paradigm The Original Crew Winery Image

Ren & Marilyn Harris have been growing grapes in Napa Valley for decades – in fact, the 2018 vintage marked Ren’s 55th harvest. They purchased their own vineyard in Oakville in 1975, and began selling grapes to neighboring wineries until making the first vintage of Paradigm in 1991. Heidi Barrett made the inaugural vintage and has been the Winemaker ever since.

Most of the 50 acre vineyard is now dedicated to making Paradigm’s own wines, but they still sell part of their crop to two neighboring wineries in the Oakville AVA. Paradigm specializes in Bordeaux varieties, with bottlings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Stylistically, their wines are classic, elegant and well-balanced.

Marilyn is a third generation Napa Valley grape grower whose grandparents came to Napa Valley from the hills of Northern Italy to grow grapes in 1890, and Ren is a sixth generation Californian whose predecessors settled San Diego in 1769. His great, great, grand-uncle was General Mariano Vallejo; the last Mexican governor of California. Ren & Marilyn still run the day-to-day operations at the winery, and their daughter and grandchildren live on the property.

Home to some of the most sought-after Cabernet Sauvignon in America, Napa Valley’s Oakville district stretches across the center of Napa's valley floor and foothills between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountains. This AVA is home to the legendary To Kalon Vineyard and Martha's Vineyard, as well as many powerhouse wineries including Screaming Eagle, Silver Oak, Robert Mondavi, Opus One, Far Niente and Groth.

The climate is generally warm and agreeable, resulting in year after year of favorable vintages. Summer days see a gentle tug of war between warmer inland air and the cool air coming in from the San Pablo Bay, creating an ideal environment to grow red varieties. Oakville's diverse soils, namely ancient sea bedrock, clay and gravel, are well-drained, and perfect for high-caliber viticulture.

Cabernet here is often bottled varietally but is also popular in Bordeaux Blends. Oakville wines are known for their silky, sensual textures, structured tannins, dark and brooding fruit and lovely aromatics. These age-worthy and prestigious wines are favored by collectors throughout the world.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
