      A very drinkable zin blend that was perfect with Thanksgiving dinner. A little on the lighter side than its Postmark sibling which followed.

      I haven't drank much Paraduxx, but I have to say there was something unique and different about the wine which I wasn't a big fan of. The wine wasn't bad, just personally not my favorite. My guess is that it's the heavy Zin presence, but I digress. The wine was crafted well, with the following specifics: light nose, showing some fruit (cherry and raspberry), but mostly a maple syrup characteristic. I felt the wine was a bit |rough around the edges| until it sat for a while, and then it |shored up| in the glass. It was full and flavorful, but just not the flavors I'm a typical fan of. It's definitely complex and well crafted- if you're a Zin fan, the blending with Cab makes for a great experience. I have a 2006 bottle that I'll get into in the future and it'll be interesting to see what changes occur from vintage to vintage. Enjoy!

      Not nearly as good as the 2005 or 2006, but still a decent Zin blend

    Co-founded in 1976 by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn, Duckhorn Wine Company includes Duckhorn Vineyards, Paraduxx, and Goldeneye Winery. Their Duckhorn Vineyards estate is renowned for its Bordeaux varietal wines and since 1982 has also produced a Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. Duckhorn commits itself to source the finest fruit in the Napa Valley and subsequently has purchased several properties to join the estate vineyard program. Currently the winery owns six estate vineyards along the slopes of Howell Mountain. Winemakers at Duckhorn aim to treat each vineyard block individually, bringing an artisan's approach to the winery. The winemaker may blend as many as 200 unique distinct lots and use up to 25 types of oak (mostly French) in the final barrel aging. Duckhorn's sister label, Decoy, is a unique blend of Bordeaux varietals that varies from year to year.

    Paraduxx was created for the estate's winemakers to express themselves outside of Duckhorn's Bordeaux-style focus. The wine is a Napa Valley red blend consisting primarily of Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. Goldeneye Winery and its sister label, Migration, produce Pinot Noir sourced from cool weather fruit in Mendocino County's Anderson Valley.
