Overview of the Wine
Acclaimed Baja winery Paralelo is flanked on all sides of its ultra-modern structure by 250 acres of carefuly tended Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Zinfandel vines. Inspired and drawn from the earth, Paralelo honors the terrain of the Valle de Guadalupe in which it has taken form.
From the first glance, visitors can tell that Paralelo will offer something fierce, proud, different. It is an ambitious project: use identical ingredients, in exact proportions, yet nurtured on different terrain. Grown in parallel, as it were. The same grape varietal will give forth a complex and unique flavor from its twin, depending on whether it has flourished in sandy earth, rocky ground, hillside or reddish clay.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Dark magenta red color, nose with aromas of candied plum, blackberry cream with a little pepper, slightly smoked and vanilla. In the mouth it is velvety of great consistency, with light and round tannins. Pair with spicy dishes in general with Mexican cuisine.
92 Points - Ian Blackburn
Ensamble represents everything I love about Baja wines; a sense of Baja at every level. The mediterrean parallels unite with a spirit of Baja - a little more sun, a little different terroir, a chemistry and excitement that is unique and a true mosaic tapestry in the winemaking. This Baja blend establishes balance - hamony and excitment. Dense, rich, round, and yet harmonious. Color 14/15 (deeply colored), Aroma 22.5/25 (beautiful details in balance), Body (intergration, dense, deep, structured but approachable) 22.5/25, Overall 33/35 = 92 Points
