Tasting Notes

92 points and two stars from the Connoisseurs' Guide to california Wine: "65% Zinfandel; 28% Cabernet Sauvignon; 7% Merlot. Deeply fruited and redolent of ripe currants, blackberries, briary spice and a wee bit of chocolate, Paraduxx once again strikes out on its own unique path and comes up something more than typical Zin. It is full and fleshy with fine balance and a bit of Cabernet grip, and its very deep, genuinely complex flavors are as long as they are impressively layered. It has a sense of refinement even if it is a touch tannic to finish, and there is no question but that it will improve for four or five years." (September 2007) 91 points from Wine Enthusiast: "This year the blend is Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. As always, the wine is rich, complex, ageable, and unique among California reds. Zin brings its distinctly briary, wild berry taste to the pedigree of the Bordeaux varieties. The result is a balanced, elegant and refined wine that will stand five to eight years of age. A great accomplishment." (10/1/2007) Concentrated aromas of ripe fruit-intense cherry, raspberry and blackberry complemented by hints of vanilla, allspice, and black pepper lead to a medium-bodied texture with velvety, well-integrated tannins and a long finish. The 2004 Paraduxx offers complex flavors of wild boysenberry, strawberry, dried currants and nuances of toasted oak. 65% Zinfandel, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot aged for 18 months in oak (65% American, 35% French).
