2014 Paramour
Napa Valley Proprietary Red Wine

Wine and the sensuous go hand in hand...

Paramour possesses both sensuality and commanding structure. Merlot and Cabernet Franc have a fragile but irresistible chemistry that flourishes when climate, soils and seasons align. The grapes allotted for this graceful red wine are grown in only the most auspicious conditions. Paramour reveals the passionate relationship between these two varietals and between winegrower and land.

"Complex aromas of blueberry, violets, espresso, and eucalyptus encircle the nose of this elegant Cabernet Franc-blend. Layers of Bing cherry, blackberry, and savory herbs combine with fine-grained tannins on the palate, leading to a round, supple finish with persistent length. Enjoy now or cellar over the next decade or more."Winemaker, Aaron Pott
