Estate Bottled Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

1hr+ decant and needed much more as my last glass was the best. Red/Purple color. Chewy wine. Blue and black fruit on the nose with a hint of tobacco. Classic Napa sweetness on the palate with ample fruit and integrated oak. Medium plus finish. Quite lovely! — 13 days ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

High expectations for this given the Paradigm winemaker legacy and the name!

Not quite at the Paradigm level but still very enjoyable.

The red fruits dominants with cherry and almost had a Sangiovese like flavor profile. Definitely not that much acidity but good tannins.

Wild Meadow Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Well, the 2016 has turned the page / it seems to be paradigm shift from the previous vintages (tighter, restrained, minimal oak). The ‘16 is quite voluminous with warm caramel brioche and baked lemon liquor. While golden and opulent, this is not a gentle and elegant food wine. Thus I am on the fence whether I want another bottle… I probably will get one because it’s still available and look for a better food pair. Day two, allowed for some beautiful sipping, though ;) edit: I will get another bottle…very nice sipper on day 2…mouthfeel is glorious! — 2 years ago

Oakville Merlot 2017

Wow. Wonderful development already. Intense nose and palate of dark stewed plums, milk chocolate, blackberries, leather, liquorice, and cherry sauce. Never ending finish with amazing concentration. Really delicious. — 2 months ago

St. Urbans-Hof Goldtröpfchen Spätlese Riesling 2016

So clean and balanced. Not a complex wine, but just a perfect balance of only a mild sweetness followed by minerality and mild acidity. A Golden Mean in all its flavors. White fruit flavors. A paradigm of Mosel Riesling. Extraordinary QPR. — a year ago

loudoun County Chardonnay

Very Chablis in effect...only 20% saw time in neutral oak. Lemon pith and rind oil sing lead with fresh minerality woven into the vibrant acidic structure. Pleasant, sophisticated mouthfeel from the lees...very functional with baked/broiled delicate white fish. Ripe fruit from a great harvest certainly make this paradigm possible ;) — 3 years ago
