Smell
The Red wine was slightly aromatic and young.  I could smell spice, sweet dark fruit.  Slight cinnamon.

Taste
The Red wine was dry and full-bodied.  The acidity was lively.  The tannins were medium with an astringent (dry) mouth feel.  The red wine was flavorful.  As I taste the red wine my mid palate had many layered flavors.  As I exhaled I could smell cherry.  The wines finish was medium in length

abv: 14.5$

How much: $50.00

The Paraduxx red wine is a blend of 64% Zinfandel, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc.  I have to say it is an interesting red blend.

I rated the 2006 Paraduxx Napa Valley Red wine three glasses.

In Vino Veritas!
