Since 1994, Paraduxx has earned acclaim for its devotion to contemporary Napa Valley blends. We create wines that capture the essence of their Napa Valley terroir—blends that are ripe and robust, yet impeccably balanced. As a winery, our pioneering, early blends focused on fusing the richness and grandeur of world-class Cabernet Sauvignon with the lush, enticing red fruit and spice of great Zinfandel. For Premiere Napa Valley, we offer the ultimate expression of this benchmark blend. Crafted around a core of the finest Cabernet from our acclaimed Rector Creek Vineyard (home to our winery), this blend gains depth and dimension through the addition of Zinfandel, resulting in a wine that strikes an artful and harmonious balance between power and complexity.
