Building on the Paraduxx tradition of artful blending, from time to time we craft Napa Valley wines highlighting different styles and varietals. This limited-production wine was inspired by a winemaking technique of fermenting two varietals together. We co-fermented Cabernet Sauvignon with Petit Verdot grapes and then combined that wine with Zinfandel, resulting in a blend with the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon, the classic wild berry and tobacco elements of Petit Verdot and the spice, fruit and bramble of Zinfandel.

Winemaker Notes
Deep, robust and intriguing, this wine displays a complex medley of aromas that includes tobacco, chocolate-covered cherries, cedar, tarragon and black pepper. The black cherry and dark fruit notes continue on the richly textured palate with a broad entry underscoring this wine’s structure and depth. Notes of black tea and tobacco add to a finish that is both sophisticated and satisfying.
Production
2011 was one of the coolest growing seasons in memory. To counteract uneven vine growth, we did meticulous green thinning, gently opened up the canopy to expose the fruit, were judicious in our picking schedule and sorted meticulously both in the vineyards and winery. Due to our quality adjustments the remainder of our fruit fared well despite the October rains. Warm up-valley locations like Oakville, Rutherford, St, Helena and Calistoga were particularly successful, and overall the resulting wines are pure and elegant.
