“One of the most approachable Paradigm Cabernets we've tasted, but still shows the hallmark structure and density this brand is known for. On the palate, satisfyingly ripe dark fruit combine with layers of spice and mineral to balance the experience. This powerful Cabernet is enjoyable now and will reward those who cellar or decant. Enjoy over the next 10-15 years.” - California Wine Advisors
