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 sourced from the highest quality vineyards in Napa and Sonoma Valleys.

"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."

"Upon first inhale, you'll be struck by scents of cinnamon, mulling spices and black plum jam. On the palate there is a linear, focused, fresh bing cherry-like acid complimented by notes of mocha, candied blood orange peel and toasted almond. The tannins are chalky, fine and delicate on the finish."

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.

"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."
