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. Fusing the robust flavors of Zinfandel with Cabernet Sauvignon, the blend embraces the best of both varietals. A true Napa Valley blend, the fruit is sourced from all over Napa Valley, including four estate vineyards. Concentrating on the warmer AVA’s of Napa, the grapes are sourced from as far North as Calistoga as far east as Pope and Chiles Valley and as far south
as Yountville. From the outstanding 2013 vintage, the blend for this wine is 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 10% Zinfandel and 4% Petit Verdot aged 18 months in oak: 95% French, 5% American, with 50% new oak, 50% second vintage. James Suckling scored this 92 points saying "Blackcurrant and blueberry aromas with hints of cigar box follow through to a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Subtle and very drinkable. Why wait?"
