Our Vineyard Series is a collection of limited-production wines that offer their own inspired variations on the contemporary and innovative style of our Paraduxx red blends. Grown in the rocky soils of our Rector Creek Vineyard, which surrounds the Paraduxx winery, this alluring blend balances the Bing cherry and herbes de Provence elements of the coveted Cabernet Franc from our Block 5, with the raspberry jam and white pepper character of great Zinfandel.

Wine Profile

Production Notes
Blend Composition: 100% Estate fruit - 69% Cabernet Franc, 25% Zinfandel, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
Winemaker Notes
Both complex and compelling, this Cabernet Franc-dominated blend begins with fascinating aromas of red currant, graphite, dried cherry, cocoa powder and toasty marshmallow, along with underlying hints of black pepper, clove, leather and earthy forest floor. On the palate, lush, juicy tannins and a voluptuous core of berry pie, cranberry and currant flavors draw this wine to a rich berry and spice finish.
Production
Winter rains were followed by a warm, dry spring in Napa Valley that led to a perfectly timed budbreak. With lovely weather throughout summer, all of our white varieties were harvested before a week-long heat event during the last week of August, resulting in Chardonnay and Viognier with excellent acids and enticing aromas. Because the early-season rains produced healthy canopies, our red grapes developed perfectly during the heat. After a timely cooldown that provided additional hangtime, our reds were harvested in September and early October, yielding bold and robust wines with beautifully polished tannins.
