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, This one follows the traditional Paraduxx formula that we all know and love. From the outstanding 2012 vintage, the blend for this wine is Composition 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Zinfandel, 3% Petit Verdot aged 16 months in 40% new Oak. Wine Review Online scored this 91 points saying " It is true that the combination of cabernet sauvignon and zinfandel is eclectic and that is certainly part of the appeal of Paraduxx. This vintage is cab-dominant at 60 percent (zin represents 37 percent of the blend and petit verdot the remainder) and thus shows ripe blackberry and current notes backed up with firm tannins. The zin contributes a spicy note and a brambly fruit note that is plump and juicy. Perfect for the upcoming grilling season."
