The lovely and talented Heidi Petterson Barrett has been the winemaker since Paradigm's first vintage. While she has made wine for other notable Oakvile properties such as Dalle Valle and Screaming Eagle, Paradigm has always been the hidden gem for wine geeks in the know.
Winemaker's Tasting Notes: "This wine is deeply pigmented with ruby/garnet color. First sniff is Napa Valley Cabernet all the way. Nice layers of ripe berry and cherry-like fruit with a matching complement of toasty French Oak from an assortment of Coopers and different barrel ages. Gorgeous across the palate with a silky yet dense mouthcoating impression. Ripeness is key and the result is a wine with perfect balance and flow - just plain delicious. It's a big, beautiful wine now but has tremendous aging potential."
