2018
Decoy Limited Red
2017 Paraduxx

Paraduxx was founded in 1994 by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn as the only Napa winery focusing exclusively on Napa Valley blends. Winemaker Cardiff Scott-Robinson combines winemaking experience from two continents, mastering multiple grape varieties and a passion for blending.

2017 Paraduxx: The color is opaque to dark cherry on the edges. The wine opens with enticing aromas of blueberry, dark cherry, cedar, and licorice. The palate has layers of rich fruit flavors, a creamy feel, velvety tannins, a spatter of dark chocolate, and spice that adds depth to a long finish that goes on for minutes. The 2017 Paraduxx Proprietary Red Wine is a bold expressive blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with 6 additional varietals that work remarkably well together. A wonderful achievement in winemaking that will satisfy the palate of today's consumer at a particularly good value.



2018 Decoy Limited Napa Valley Red: This well-crafted red uses grapes from some of the most acclaimed Napa Valley vineyards, including Duckhorn’s own estate properties. It is composed of Merlot, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and a small amount of Tempranillo.

The deep ruby accents aromas of cassis, ripe cherry. The flavors take you through a bold, rich, and luxurious journey of blackberry, baking spices and a pleasant sweetness from the French Oak. The creamy texture carries through a long and velvety finish.
