Paraduxx 2010 Red Wine, Z Blend, Napa Valley
Item Number: 28 20 189 10
Duckhorn's most innovative wine, Paraduxx was created as a way to showcase Napa Valley's exceptional grape growing with a blend that is pure California. A crowd-pleaser year after year, they decided to expand the line with two distinct blends. This one is called Z Blend and it follows the traditional Paraduxx formula that we all know and love. The blend is 63% Zinfandel, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Merlot and it's aged 16 months in 75% French and 25% American oak barrels, 40% new. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 90 points saying "Each of the three varieties in the blend brings its own unique contribution. Zinfandel, the majority, gives spicy wild-berry flavors and robust body. Cabernet Sauvignon lends its firm tannins and deep black-currant flavors, while Merlot adds a soft, sensual mouthfeel. The resulting wine is easy to drink now with almost anything calling for a full-bodied dry red wine."
