Paradigm Winery, located in the Oakville appellation of Napa Valley, hand-crafts small quantities of estate-bottled red wine. We're known for our Merlot and our Cabernet Sauvignon, though we also produce a tiny amount of Zinfandel and Cabernet Franc. Regardless of the varietal, our wines are a rich expression of the vineyard we've been farming now for twenty-nine years. Paradigm Winery is owned and managed by Ren and Marilyn Harris, two winegrowers with extraordinarily deep roots in Napa Valley. Marilyn's grandparents immigrated from Italy to Napa Valley in 1890, while Ren's family came to California in 1769. Marilyn and Ren purchased Paradigm Vineyards in 1976, and began producing wine with the 1991 vintage. Since that first vintage, the wines have been made by renowned winemaker, Heidi Peterson Barrett. Heidi's father, Dick Peterson, was instrumental in laying out and designing the winery. Read less

This medium garnet colored Merlot reveals ripe plum and black cherry fruit aromas. Subtle spiciness and toasty oak enhance the nose. Fleshy and soft in the mouth, the flavors match the aromas with the predominant character of plum and black cherry. This is a medium bodied, easy to drink Merlot, with soft tannins and a silky soft balance.93% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc
