Description

Generous in ripe black cherry, pine forest, tar and toasted oak, this is a hearty wine, robustly full bodied, with a gravelly aspect to the texture that provides complexity and ample length. - WE88

Juicy and lively, with zesty raspberry, blackberry, spice and light earth flavors. Drink now through 2020. - WS87

Since our first vintage in 2001, Migration has developed a refined and compelling style that balances vibrancy and finesse. Defined by the idea of movement, Migration is dedicated to going beyond our Anderson Valley origins and exploring Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the finest cool-climate winegrowing regions. This exploration has taken us to the storied vineyards of California’s Russian River Valley, where clockwork fog and Goldridge sandy loam soils have contributed to a Pinot Noir with beautiful, high-tone red fruit flavors of strawberry, cherry and cranberry and enticing hints of orange-cinnamon spice.

Classic Russian River Valley aromas of ripe red raspberry, Bing cherry and pomegranate explode from the glass. These vibrant red berry flavors are echoed on the lush, silky palate, where they mingle with notes of blackberry and hints of French oak-inspired spice. - Winemaker's Notes

The Winery

Since being founded in 1994, Paraduxx has earned acclaim as the only winery solely devoted to stylish Napa Valley blends. Artfully crafted to appeal to the modern palate, the visionary blends of the Paraduxx portfolio have established a reputation for their bold, expressive character and their food-friendly sophistication.

Every great tradition begins as an innovation. Duckhorn Wine Company originally created Paraduxx to allow its winemakers the freedom to explore other styles without detracting from Duckhorn Vineyards' focus on Bordeaux varietals. In 1994, Paraduxx sourced 4 tons of Zinfandel from the 100-year-old vines of Napa's Korte Vineyard. This Zinfandel was blended with Duckhorn Vineyards' own estate Cabernet Sauvignon, along with smaller amounts of Merlot and Petite Sirah to create the first Paraduxx vintage.

All of the wines in the Paraduxx portfolio are made in a state-of-the art winery that was unveiled in 2005. The centerpiece of the Paraduxx winery is a unique 10-sided fermentation building inspired by traditional round barns. Flanking the fermentation building are two symmetrical barrel cellars, partially set below grade to allow gravity flow of the fermented wine to oak barrels for aging.
