Wine Review & Notes
The fruit for Gamble Family Vineyards Paramount comes from several distinguished Napa Valley Vineyards: Cabernet Sauvignon from the Oakville knoll-top vineyard, Merlot from Rutherford, Cabernet Franc from St Helena and Petit Verdot from Mount St Helena.
The varieties are harvested, fermented and aged separately. The fruit was lightly crushed and underwent a cold soak before fermentation. After fermentation, the wine was transferred to 60 gallon barrels, 43% of which were new French oak, where the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and is aged for 19 months before blending.
