K&L Notes

Winemaker Heidi Peterson Barret says this of her 2005 Oakville Cab: "Quite dark in color with deep ripe aromas of chocolate black cherries. Enticing fruit nose and layers of spice and toasty oak add up to a wonderful rich complex aroma profile. Flavors match the aromas in a mouth coating, textural, silky and tasty wine. This wine is loaded with aging potential. It has everything it needs to last a good 15 years or more. I love the balance and finesse here with flavors that persist minutes after drinking. It all adds up to one of the best Cabernet vintages we have ever produced at Paradigm."

    During our recent successful tent fundraiser in June I navigated through the sea of conviviality to Paradigm's table, extended my glass with a smile, sniffed and swirled, swirled and sniffed, and then it hit me....the eagle has landed! This extraordinary wine was as effortlessly balanced as a perfect liftoff, as graceful as a spacewalk, and as dark as daylight on the far side of the moon. Luna culpa: I'm writing this little note on the 40th anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing, so please forgive the starry-eyed similes. Let me just state for the record books that the 2005 Paradigm Cabernet, under the screaming eagle-eye of Heidi Peterson Barrett, is pure liquid velvet, an expressive, expansive heavenly bottle of a wine to carefully cellar for a decade or more and joyfully uncork on the 50th anniversary of that famous walk on the moon. This is serious out-of-this-world wine—'one small sip for man' …..
    Top Value! Drink from 2015 to 2035
