Paradigm Winery Oakville
The Harris’s sizeable vineyard property in the heart of Oakville underpins the admirable quality achieved at this excellent small estate. Production is very small at around 5,000 cases. Winemaking expertise is provided by Heidi Peterson Barrett and in the principal wine, the Cabernet Sauvignon (blended with Cabernet Franc and Merlot for harmony), she achieves a round supple style with richly textured blackberry fruit and a hint of vanilla and spice from ageing in high quality toasty new oak. She also handcrafts very good Merlot, a tiny amount of Zinfandel and, most recently, Cabernet Franc. (DM)
