The Paraduxx Proprietary Red is an exceptional blend crafted in the renowned Napa Valley of California. This wine is a masterful combination of varietals, often led by Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel, that artfully marries the robustness of Napa's mountain fruit with the brightness and vibrancy of its valley floor grapes. In the glass, it reveals a deep, alluring ruby hue. Aromatically, it is a symphony of ripe red and black fruits—cherries, blackberries, and plums—beautifully layered with nuances of sweet spices, cedar, and dark chocolate. On the palate, the Paraduxx Proprietary Red is both rich and elegantly structured, boasting lush, concentrated fruit flavors harmoniously woven with notes of vanilla and toasted oak. The tannins are smooth and refined, framing the flavors and leading to a long, satisfying finish that is both powerful and graceful. This wine is a testament to the winemaking expertise of Paraduxx, offering a unique and sophisticated expression of Napa Valley’s terroir.

In their sixth vintage, they continue to craft wine from the Kahn Vineyard. Situated on the southernmost tip of the Mayacamas range, dividing Napa and Sonoma Valley, this hillside vineyard boasts a mix of volcanic and valley floor soils, resulting in exceptional complexity. Managed with certified organic practices, the vineyard benefits from cool nights and warm days, achieving a harmonious balance between ripeness and acidity. A unique approach was adopted, employing 100% whole cluster and gentle pump overs instead of the customary punch downs. Harvested at 24 Brix, the wine aged for 18 months in neutral oak barrels, followed by another 18 months of bottle aging. The result is a wine characterized by meaty minerality, bright tannins, a full fruit mid-palate, and a lingering finish.
