Winemaker Notes
The 2016 Pintail offers sumptuous aromas of black cherry and blackberry jam, along with undertones of cinnamon and mocha. On the palate, flavors of fresh-baked raspberry cobbler are supported by well-structured tannins and hints of oak-inspired holiday spice that add nuance and depth to the lush, focused finish.
Production
2016 was an incredibly successful harvest for Paraduxx. Starting on August 15th with our Rector Creek Estate Viognier and ending on October 20th with perfectly ripened Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, the season was seamless. Overall, we harvested 15 different grape varieties from 14 different Napa Valley appellations. The growing season was filled with warm sunny days, intermittent cool weeks, and no rain events to speak of—all of which were ideal for achieving perfect ripeness with good natural acidity. Overall, there is a lovely elegance to our 2016 wines, with soft, velvety tannins and ripe, impeccably balanced berry flavors.
