Tasting Notes

Grown on Paradigm's Oakville estate, Paradigm has been made by Heidi Peterson Barrett since its first vintage in 1991. The simple approach of winemaking for Paradigm allows the Oakville terroir to express itself without heavy-handed intervention. The 2013 is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Heidi Peterson Barrett raves about it: "Another great vintage with the 2013 for Napa Valley Cab! Dark ruby red color with aromas of sweet, toasty oak, cedar, ripe black cherry, currants and spice. Absolutely delicious across the palate. Flavors are big and mouth coating yet so well balanced and silky across the palate. Dense chewy refined tannins in the mid palate with great length and persistent flavors. This is a beauty that will be delicious at release but is also age worthy. Enjoy!"

    To me, there is little in this world that satisfies like Oakville fruit, and in this beauty, fruit is the star. Aromas of spiced blueberry and ripe and stewed strawberry rise from the glass, buoyed on a waft of fresh shiso leaf, vanilla and blackberry. If that weren't enough, violet and rose floral notes spring forth in an aromatic haze, telling the story of a sunny and dusty terroir that can only be found in the heart of Napa Valley. With a broad, classic palate with a firm, balanced tannin that cleans up very nicely, this wine lingers pleasantly in a cherry-cocoa trail.
