Paraduxx was founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn as the first Napa Valley winery devoted exclusively to making Napa Valley blends. Though taking inspiration from the great red blends of the world, Paraduxx has maintained a nearly 25-year commitment to making wines that reflect the character and charm of Napa Valley.
The 2012 vintage in Napa offered near-perfect growing conditions. The warm weather during the early part of the growing season was followed by a slightly cooler than average remainder of the growing season. The harvest was 2-3 weeks later than average and the grapes arriving at the winery were in pristine condition.
Crafted from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Zinfandel, and 3% Petit Verdot, winemaker Dan LaBorde utilized a combination of 90% French and 10% American oak of which 40% was new. In total, the wine has spent 16 months in oak barrel prior to bottling.
"The nose offers enticing layers of spicy brambleberry, as well as hints of ripe blackberry and oak-inspired vanilla cream. Ripe red-fruited raspberry notes dominate the palate of this lovely blend, underscored by deeper layers of blueberry and spice. Beautifully balanced tannins carry the flavors through to a long, satisfying finish." Don LaBorde- winemaker

"This wine combines 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Zinfandel and 3% Petit Verdot from the producer's Three Palms Vineyard. Smooth and toasty, it's also structured and vibrantly fruity in black cherry, with delightful hints of clove and black pepper." Virginie Boone
