Cellar for up to 8 years. Decant 1 hour prior to drinking.

A blend of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel with Petite Syrah thrown into the mix as well, the Paraduxx Proprietary Red Blend is a dark ruby colored wine that opens with a vibrant red cherry and plum nose, with hints of vanilla spice. The palate shows smooth, velvety notes of pomegranate, spicecake, and blackberry jam with a medium body. A long and balanced finish with fine grained ripe tannins hints at black pepper and cinnamon.

A wine with excellent juicy acidity, the Paraduxx Proprietary Red Blend would match well with Asian inspired hoisin or plum sauces on duck, harder aged cheese like cheddar or Manchego, or even baby back ribs, Osso Bucco, or Paella. With a wine of personality such as this, the possibilities are almost endless!

Grown and vinified by the Duckhorn family of vintners in the Napa Valley, this particular wine is an incredibly complex project, with the winemaker using as many as 60 individual fermentations of various plots in differing blends for a single vintage. This is combined with an oak regimen of 18 months of aging in new and one-year-old French and American barrels to add additional layers to the wine. Uniquely for Napa Valley it is also a mix of two grapes not normally combined together, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel, however that uniqueness has proven to be popular, and the Paraduxx Proprietary Red Blend is now their flagship wine.
