Paraduxx Proprietary Blend 2013

72% Zinfandel, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc with 65% American oak and 35% French, 40% of the oak new. A deep, dark, vibrant purple colour. The aromas explode with ripe fruit: strawberry, boysenberry, and plum, complemented by hints of violets, spice, and orange peel. Medium-bodied with a chewy texture, robust yet approachable tannins, and a firm, lengthy finish. Ripe flavours of raspberry, red cherry, and boysenberry are balanced by complex notes of dark chocolate, espresso bean, and black liquorice.
