In another exciting round of speed dating with wine, we have the 2009 Paraduxx Z Blend Red Wine. It’s a red blend from Napa made of Zin, Cab Sauv, and a touch of Merlot. Very aromatic and almost floral on the nose with spice, pepper and blackberry. In the mouth it’s spicy with more black fruit, black plum, and black cherry, pepper and tannins on the finish.
I’d serve this with BBQ pork ribs. Also, this winery has a pretty interesting 2009 Zinfandel that was cofermented with Viognier that I tried earlier today.
