Parallel "Black Diamonds" Source Vineyard


Parallel has carefully selected its fruit source vineyards. The foundation in any vineyard is matching the soil type to the vine. When the soil, microclimate, rootstocks, clones and farming practices are in concert the vineyard will yield the best that it can offer. At the end of the day, we are able to carefully select the barrels for blending and for achieving the best possible Cabernet wines We have been fortunate indeed, with our vineyards providing a symphony of focused layers of different flavors in the wine. Now add the wonderful vineyard mangers, our philosophy and a truly gifted winemaker.

While we commonly think of terrior as the soil and the microclimate of a particular vineyard, which give the fruit its identifiable character, a consistency and sense of the place, year after year. Terrior is just as powerfully defined by the people. Parallel is made up of its passionately involved partners, one of the world's most dedicated and skilled winemakers, and some of Napa Valley's most experienced and talented vineyard managers and farmers. For over 10 years this same team has been dedicated to the development and definition of Parallel.
