K&L Notes

Heidi Barret has been the winemaker at Paradigm since their first vintage in 1991 when they started using some of their grapes to make wine instead of simply selling them to other nearby wineries. Heidi’s philosophy in making wines for Paradigm is simple. She feels that she is working with an extraordinary vineyard site that has been farmed impeccably for years. She lets the fruit from this vineyard express its quality and unique terroir with minimal intervention. Winery note: "The 2015 vintage produced delicious concentrated wines in smaller quantity than normal. This black raspberry colored Cabernet has lovely open aromatics of black cherry, berry, and plum layered with a perfect balance of new and used French Oak." Situated among some of the most prized properties in Oakville, Paradigm is a standout Napa producer that annually flies under the radar of many consumers, thanks to the winery's policy of foregoing critical scores. Still, with neighboring vineyards such as Opus One, To-Kalon, Promontory, and Cardinale, you can rest assured the quality of raw materials is of the highest Napa standards. But because the wines are relatively unknown among the jet-set, the prices remain a steal by comparison.
