Your interaction with Paramount begins before your lips ever touch the glass. Aromas of sun-warmed black cherry, fig and melted cocoa nibs waft from the glass. At the edge of your sensory memory, you discover hints of coriander, violets and marzipan. A touch of smoke and cedar, perhaps a cigar box. You're reminded of mint and holiday spices. At first taste, a full-bodied wine with smooth tannins and layer upon layer of flavor. Dark fruit for sure, also sour cherry and vanilla. Is that bramble, and black currant leaf? Young leather, root beer and even Dr. Pepper. The flavors dance in the mouth, long after the wine is gone. A blend sure to please many palates and pair with an endless variety of cuisines. Enjoy this wine now or over the next 10-15 years.
Equal parts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc make up the heart of this wine, with 28% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot. Boldly succulent, robust and full bodied, it has an earthiness that's part wood, part cedar, with big pronounced tannins seasoned in clove and pencil.
