Paradigm Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$79.99

New release of Heid Barrett's Oakville Cabernet! Heidi Barrett is well-known as the original winemaker for Screaming Eagle, but Paradigm is her secret sleeper from Oakville in Napa Valley. The brilliant new Paradigm 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is gorgeous now, but the patient may see it rival the wonderful 1999 Paradigm as this winery's best Cab ever.Winemaker Tasting Notes:  "My First comment tasting this wine is "wow!" It's delicious; our flagship wine at Paradigm and it delivers. Dense, deep, ripe aromas of black berry and black cherry-like fruit layered with caramel and toastiness from a nice mix of French Oak barrels. Flavors coat the palate with matching notes in a classic Cabernet Sauvignon presentation. One of our best Cabs to date!"

Pure Ruby red. Subtle aroma - currant, licorice, dull fig. Elegant, rounded, and extremely easy to drink with exceptionally soft tannins. Subdued fruit. Lush. Glassy. Quintessential Cab.

Gorgeous wine. For the price of a bottle of Silver Oak AV, you get something that hits beyond its weight class. Should come as no big surprise as winemaker is cult favorite Heidi Barrett and grapes are rumored to be from Screaming Eagle. Whether it's true or not matters not (editor's note: it isn't true). This is an elegant expression of Napa Valley Cabernet that is absolutely approachable today but should also age and improve over the next 5+ years.
