Since when does Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon go together in a blend? While there are many of these kinds of wines in the marketplace, Paraduxx is one of the few wineries to do such an excellent job in fashioning this type of wine. The 2016 Paraduxx Proprietary Red takes the power of Zinfandel and combines it successfully with the stylish of Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine shows plenty of richness on the palate as well as length in the finish. Its aromas and flavors of alluring bramble berries and bright blackcurrants should pair it well with an eye of the round roast. (Tasted: April 11, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

An unusually minty cabernet for a modern Napa wine, but the delicate bitter-chocolate note is very modern. The elegant, moderately dry tannins and the crispness at the long finish make this super food-friendly for a red with almost 15 per cent alcohol. Drink or hold.

90pts Jeb Dunnuck

The 2016 Proprietary Red Wine checks in as an interesting blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Zinfandel, 19% Petit Verdot, and 7% Merlot. It's a delicious, fruit-forward, textured effort that has tons of cassis, toasted spice, licorice, and dried herb aromas and flavors. It's nicely balanced and packs tons of pleasure.

Winemaker Notes

The only winery devoted to stylish Napa Valley blends, Paraduxx offers bold and expressive wines to satisfy the modern palate. Fusing the robust flavors of California’s native Zinfandel with the grandeur of Cabernet Sauvignon, the Pintail Blend embraces the best of these varietals. This unique combination results in a wine with rich, full fruit flavors and soft, elegant tannins.
