New release of Heid Barrett's Paradigm Merlot Napa Valley!
Heidi Barrett is well-known as the winemaker for Screaming Eagle, but Paradigm is her secret sleeper label from Oakville in Napa Valley. Wonderful Merlot from the heart of Napa Valley. Only 830 cases made.
Heidi Barrett: "A Beautiful deep ruby red color with an enticing aroma profile that is wide open and exciting. Layers of ripe Merlot plum-like fruit with almost sweet aromas of toast, French Oak, caramel corn, and cardamom spice. Broad, silky, and mouth coating this is one of our best Merlot’s to date. It has soft balance but still lively with a long flavor profile. Tannins are refined and easy on the palate. This is a delicious Merlot immensely enjoyable upon release but will prove to be age worthy as well."
New release of Heidi Barrett's Rare Paradigm Rosé of Merlot! Perfect for summer. An exclusive.
"Our Rosé is made of 100% Merlot grapes from our Oakville Estate. The color is a beautiful pale salmon pink. The aromatics are clean and fresh of strawberries, honeysuckle, and pink grapefruit. Crisp acidity and flavors that match the aromas carry the wine across the palate. Refreshing and easy to drink, this wine is very enjoyable."
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 2013 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!"
