“Complex and subtle red with blackberry and blueberry character. Hints of cassis bush. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. A blend cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot and petit verdot.” - James Suckling

Winery Notes: “The vision for Paramount goes against the grain of convention set in recent decades of what a wine from Napa should be. The Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc, along with Merlot and Petit Verdot, harmonize with New-World creativity to allow the changing composition of percentages from vintage to vintage. Finesse, subtlety and strength. This is a wine greater than the sum of its parts. We strive to showcase the best of each vintage – the outstanding achievements of our vineyards and winemaker in a given year. The final blend is drawn from fruit grown on exceptional vineyard sites stretching the length and breadth of the Napa Valley, each with its own unique and expressive terroir.”
