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 and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wine Profile

Production Notes
Blend Composition: 100% estate fruit - 60% Cabernet Franc, 39% Zinfandel, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon
Winemaker Notes
Combining the sophistication of Cabernet Franc and the exuberance of Zinfandel, this wine offers aromas of black cherry, currant, bramble spice, brown sugar, cedar and crushed rock minerality. The luxurious dark fruit notes are echoed on the palate where they mingle with layers of cracked pepper, clove, dark chocolate and spice, with rich, well-structured tannins carrying the wine to a long, elegant finish.
Production
The 2021 growing season started with a very dry winter, with almost no rain in the month of February. Due to the lack of moisture, there were more frost events, which when combined with an extended period of bloom led to some shatter during cluster formation, resulting in smaller overall yields. Summer brought ideal temperate weather ensuring that the grapes were able to achieve excellent ripeness. While harvest was fairly compressed, with both white and red grapes coming into the winery at the same time, the quality of the fruit was exceptional, producing a stunning vintage of beautifully concentrated wines with deep, alluring colors.
