Paradigm Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
Our cabernet has luscious black cherry and blackberry aromas with a bit of mocha, red licorice and spice. On the palate, the wine is a big round mouthful of flavor, power and elegance. Classic Paradigm flavor profile, black cherry, berry, a sweet touch of toasty french oak, silky texture, seamless with a well tiered finish. Flavors are explosive in the mouth yet the wine has such a lovely structure and great balance.
Four and a half glasses
One of my favorite cabs
This is my all time favorite wine. I could seriously drink it every day.
External Reviews for Paradigm Cabernet Sauvignon
Made by Heidi Barrett, a gracefully soft, impressively balanced wine, with ripe, almost sweet cassis, cherry and cocoa flavors. Sure is easy to drink, but also has the structural harmony to hang in there for up to 10 years.
A rich, sophisticated, concentrated wine, with layers of blackberry, currant, pencil lead, cedar and earth, finishing with a smooth texture and silky tannins. Drink now through 2012.
Notably complex and complete, with a mix of sweet, ripe currant, black cherry and plum accented by ample vanilla bean and mocha-scented oak. The tannins are firm, ripe and well-integrated, giving it an elegant mouthfeel. Best from 2007 through 2013.
Pretty much a copy of last year, maybe a tad less opulent, this is a soft, balanced Cabernet that shows off Oakville's supreme ability to ripen fruit and tannins. It's a gentle, thoroughly dry wine, rich in black currant, cherry and mocha flavors, with a nice cut of acidity. Best in its youth, but should hold for 10 years.

Chocolate, cherries and an earthy edge to it. Lots of fruit and some layers of toased oak. This wine is silky on the finish.
Wine Tasting notesThis is a big, ripe, beautiful wine from what has proven to be a very consistent vineyard estate. Fully ripe fruit aromas remind me of summertime. Plum, fig, berry, and spice All come together in the nose leading you to flavors that match. Nice purity of fruit with a round, silky, and rich mouthfeel. The tannins are soft and lightly add a mouth-coating texture and structure to the wine. A very tasty Cabernet from a great vintage.
