Parallel Napa Valley:
The Parallel Estate Vineyards: Parallel is located just northeast of Rutherford and southeast of St Helena, above Lake Hennessey and across the lake from Prichard Hill. It occupies a very dramatic 62 acre Vaca mountainside ranch with spectacular ridgeline and valley views. The well drained hillside soils allow us to produce smaller berries and concentrated fruit. With just eight acres planted, we have room to grow.

Relatively soft. Needs time but is good now. Hot, spicy, light mint chocolate. Acidic, tannic. Red cherries. Cabby.

I got this as an X-mas gift in 2007 from the old man. He's quite the collector and wanted to get me some relatively unknown names (Parallel and Corison). We tried this one, and although I am a wine newbie, I know what I like. And, I like this one a great deal, so much so that I signed up for their distribution list the nest day. It is just really balanced, has great flavors, and a long, pleasant finish. I know these are generic comments but this wine doesn't disappoint.

Phillipe Mellka is the heralded wine maker of Hundred Acres and now has created this beautiful Cabernet from Parallel. The soft tannins allow for immediate consumption.
