Paraduxx Proprietary Red Wine 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Jeb DunnuckThe 2014 Proprietary Red Wine checks in as a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Zinfandel and the rest Merlot that was brought up mostly in French oak (5% American). Spiced plums, incense, dried herbs, and cedar notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, charming, nicely textured 2014 that has enough depth and tannin to keep for a decade.
Wine SpectatorAn assertive style, with aggressive tannins and a dense core of herb and currant flavors. The tannins are challenging. Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Merlot. Best from 2019 through 2027. 13,400 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastThis is a thick full-bodied commingling of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Merlot. Soy, plum sauce and brambly blackberry rise on the palate. The grapes are a mix of mountain-grown and valley floor.
