I highly recommend you get as much as you can… (case-worthy) (cellar-worthy) (stock-up alert) (2016 vintage) … also very Tasty and Yummy! 🙂  Made by the Legendary Queen of Napa Valley, the Original 100 Point Screaming Eagle Winemaker, the First Lady of Wine… I can keep going on and on – Heidi back to you …

Tasting Notes From Heidi Barrett Winemaker, “Dark Cabernet color with beautiful aromas of black cherry, cassis, plums, 5-spice, vanilla. Big, ripe and mouthcoating across the palate. The flavors are similar to the aromas with ripe fruit, berry/cherry pie, moderate tannins, and nice length. This wine shows enough structure to be age-worthy yet soft and balanced enough to enjoy upon release. Flavors linger in this tasty dense wine. Tastes like Oakville.” ~ Winemaker Heidi Barrett

If I were to choose one wine that perfectly expresses Oakville’s notorious complexity, Paradigm would be my first choice. Their Estate Vineyard is ideally positioned directly South of Andy Beckstoffer’s Iconic To-Kalon Vineyard in an area widely considered the epicenter of Grand Cru quality Cabernet Sauvignon. The winery’s neighbors include icons, Dominus, Harlan, Opus One, and Martha’s Vineyard, and under $100, Paradigm tips the scales with groundbreaking levels of quality.

This absolutely stunning Cabernet was made by Heidi Barrett whose past and present clients includes Amuse Bouche, Screaming Eagle, Dalla Valle, Grace Family, Revana, David Arthur and Barbour… Heidi made the 2016 Paradigm Cab vintage in a focused, beautifully knit style that’s concentrated and highly detailed. The wine spends 20 months in oak and 20 months in the bottle before release and offers a parade of focused red and black fruits, minerals, and vanilla bean.
