Special blend of estate grown Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon handcrafted by Heidi Barrett
Barrel aged for 20 months in French oak
This wine when enjoyed young is well balanced and will continue to age well for 15 to 20 additional years
Our 2013 Paradigm Cabernet Sauvignon is a unique blend made exclusively from two extraordinary blocks of fruit from the south west portion of our fifty five acre vineyard in Oakville that we have specifically blended for Premiere Napa Valley 2015. Our winemaker, Heidi Barrett, has hand crafted an amazingly balanced Cabernet Sauvignon blend along with our director of production, Mark Fasi. They have focused their attention on these two blocks in the south west portion of the vineyard as we feel it is some of the most expressive fruit from our property. The varied soil that has been deposited in this region from three alluvial fans from the Mayacamas Mountains allows for remarkable Cabernet. This Premiere blend is made to age with soft centered tannin, balanced acidity and deep silky smooth texture.
Wine is 100% estate grown and bottled
