Chardonnay

Our Chardonnay has a kiss of oak at first blush with a bright, crisp finish that expresses notes of creme brulee and brioche equally with tropical and citrus fruits. Winemaker Philippe Melka brings his softer French approach to these beautiful grapes, which results in a pre-sold out vintage year after year. Joining one of our Wine Clubs or purchasing Futures ensures you won't miss out on a release!

**ONLY 49 PRODUCED! ALL SIGNED BY WINEMAKER, PHILIPPE MELKA!**

Winemaker Philippe Melka's Tasting Notes

"The 2018 Napa Valley Chardonnay opens with expressive notes of lemon zest and grapefruit. Nice acidity, minerality, crushed rock and oyster shell...The wine is fermented and aged in 50% new French Oak which adds another layer of spices and texture to the wine...The grapes are coming from old vines planted in 1971, AXR rootstock which is very rare to find today...Drinking well, but also a Chardonnay that can age."

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Parallel Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is hand-selected by renowed Winemaker Philippe Melka from prized vineyards across Napa Valley, including the AVAs of Coombsville, Yountville, Atlas Peak, Oakville, Rutherford and St. Helena. The wine's profile is smooth and supple with a soft structure that shows bright red fruits and is easy-drinking and very food-friendly.

92 Points - Wine Advocate

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon displays notes of prunes, spice cake, plum pudding and blueberry preserves with touches of red currant jelly, dried herbs, tobacco and olives. Full-bodied, firm and chewy and with tons of fruit at the core, it finishes long and spicy."

92 Points - Wine & Spirits

"Focused on dark, earthy flavors, this wine is classical in shape—it has a beginning, a middle and its flavors are targeted toward the end. Those flavors are mineral and firm for now, needing age to bring detail to the black fruit. Cellar this five or six years, then serve with roast lamb."

Black Diamond Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

On the ski slopes, Black Diamond runs let you know that you are about to experience the most exhilarating runs the mountain has to offer. Our Black Diamond Reserve is used to mark the very best barrels we produce annually. The 2009 release of Black Diamond Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was the beginning of an ongoing program that now culminates each year during Harvest Season with a "Name the Vintage" contest. Parallel Wines' fans submit a Black Diamond or Double Black Diamond ski run at a favorite resort, and the winner is rewarded with their ski run selection on the front label of the bottle as well as an etched 3L bottle of their named vintage upon its release. Click the "Black Diamond Reserve" link to learn more about these vintages.

96 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

"The inky hued 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Eclipse is stunning, offering a rocking boquet of creme de casis, white chocolate, crushed flowers, graphite and hints of pencil shavings. This full-bodied, power-packed, gorgeous 2017 has a great mid-palate, sweet tannins, and a monster finish. It's up with the creme de la creme!"

"Lots of tobacco leaf, damp earth, chocolate, and coffee notes as well as a rich core of black and blue fruits emerge from the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Limelight, which is full-bodied, concentrated, and structured on the palate. It has a touch more tannins than the Eclipse cuvee and is going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age. It's another terrific wine from this estate."

"The 2014 Paradise Cabernet Sauvignon has a striking, deep garnet hue and a bouquet of vanilla, cardamom, berry cobbler and smoke box. The beautifully balanced acid gives this wine a bright, fresh palate with layered notes of spice and blackberry compote. Sit with this one and let the luscious, long-lasting tannins develop."
