Building on the Paraduxx tradition of artful blending, this limited-production wine was inspired by the great wines of Côte-Rôtie, where Syrah and Viognier are traditionally co-fermented to make a beautifully aromatic wine. To create a uniquely Napa Valley blend, we combined co-fermented Syrah and Viognier with Cabernet Sauvignon. The result is a wine that brings together the savory meat, smoke and leather flavors of Syrah with the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon and the enticing floral aromatic of Viognier.

Wine Profile

Production Notes
Blend Composition: 85% Syrah, 15% Viognier
Winemaker Notes
This classic Rhône-inspired co-fermentation of Syrah and Viognier is beautifully aromatic, with inviting floral, plum, vanilla and holiday spice layers, as well as more savory notes of sandalwood, cedar and nutmeg. On the palate, generous red and blue fruit flavors are framed by supple, flowing tannins that carry the wine to a long, focused 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.
