At first oaky on the nose but air quickly brings out attractive blackcurrant and herb notes that help to lend the aromatics some balance here. Nice freshness and weight on entry carries through across the palate with some woody tannins and a touch of caramel and fudge topping the modest red berry fruit here. The finish is relatively bright and fresh, if short. Nothing out of place, but at the same time this is an awfully safe wine. 85pts
Milk chocolate and oak greet the nose followed by an attractive blend of lightly vegetal curranty fruit. The oak is a touch dominant at the moment but smells light and fresh, and mouthwateringly savory. Very smooth and supple on the palate, there's a lot to like here. This is balanced and polished but not boring or dull on the palate with hints of raspberries in cream followed by red currant and slightly dried plum fruit. The oak is obvious but well-balanced with a touch of nuttiness and toast on the finish where the tannins reassert themselves, but not in an unpleasant way before jammy red currant fruit grabs hold of the moderately long finish and drives it home with a hint of vanilla. I do like this but it is a bit paint by numbers, making it a very safe choice. 88pts

Great body, smooth, dark flavors
good body, dark fruits and good tannins, nice finish
I found the wine very aromatic and smooth. It had a hint of spiciness to it with a dry aftertaste. I drink it again and recommend to others.
Outstanding -- and love being able to get a duckhorn product at the grocery store. Smooth, well balanced. Worth the price.
Fruity, lots of plumb flavors. Had at Palm on 11-28-12.
The aroma hits you as soon as you open the bottle. Excellent red wine!

Don't let the new packaging fool you, this is the same Zin-based Paraduxx blend from Duckhorn we've had on the shelves for years. The aromas are complex and inviting, with lifted red fruit elements of raspberry and plum.
The 2010 vintage has delivered a beautifully fragrant wine with layered aromas of blackberry, cassis, cinnamon cake, anise, cardamom, tobacco leaf and mocha. On the palate, the entry is soft and smooth with blueberry and bittersweet chocolate flavors, as
The only Cabernet Sauvignon I saw was the 2010 Napa bottling. Sweet black currant fruit, graphite, background oak and earth are present in this medium-bodied, elegant, stylish Cabernet Sauvignon. It should drink well for 7–8 years.
Well structured, with a charming core of currant, blackberry, cedar and spice. The tannins are firm and give the flavors traction on the finish. Drink now through 2021.
Offers aromas of currant and tomato leaf, with structured flavors of black cherry, cedar and walnut. A solid wine in a tough vintage. Drink now through 2018.
It is rich and appealing with fragrant, lifted aromas of mulberry, raspberry and currant with hints of rhubarb and mocha. The soft-toned fruit flavors dominate the plush and inviting palate with engaging spice complexity.
This wine's hearty tannins and balanced acidity provide a textural framework for an enticing array of aromas and flavors that begin with notes of bright red cherry, plum, tobacco, vanilla and anise. On the palate, layers of fig, red currant, almond, cedar and sweet spice are revealed, along with a subtle doughiness that lends to an appealing mouthfeel.
90% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Cabernet Franc. With firm tannins and exceptional length, this is a lovely and age-worthy wine that shows how much Merlot can excel in a cooler growing season. The aromas are rich and inviting with layers of amaretto, sweet spice and cedar. On the palate, lush flavors of plum, blackberry and cherry dominate, with the tannins adding structure and depth.
