Tasty, but could benefit from a bit more cellaring.

Dark red, purplish in color. The bouqet was still nice - dark berries, some current and even some chocolate. The tannins were very mild and on the palate the fruit dominated. The finish was faint - if you have any of this wine left, drink it now.

A full nose with green and black olive, some herbaceousness, cocoa powder and diffuse fruit scents. Very forward and ends nicely with sweet caramel flavor. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13 % Cabernet Franc, 12% Merlot aged for 19 months in French oak, 78% of which was new. Drink now.

About This Producer

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
