Not very complex, no cedar or tobacco that you would normally expect at this price point from a Napa cab base. Basically just a fruit bomb. Neutral rating based on price.

November 22, 2013 - Fruit-forward, medium-bodied Cabernet dominates, but with a nice touch of pepper and spice from the Zin on the finish. A splash of earth, oak and vanilla round out the taste with tannins that indicate a good short term cellaring window. This is a crowd pleaser and a nice QBR at $40/bottle.

October 26, 2013 - Tasted after a 2 hour decant. Reasonably good wine that I thought I'd like better. Blend of 62% Cab and 38% Zinfandel. Very nice structure with supple/velvety tannins. The overly strong, simpleton black currant finish is a little too "Juicy Juice"-style and leaves me wanting more complexity. I typically enjoy wines from Paraduxx and I'm certainly willing to try this wine again to see if I find it more fulfilling.
