2009 Parallel Napa Valley Cabernet

“Excellent” 92 points. 


2008 Parallel Estate Cabernet

“Excellent” 94 points.

“..... the 2009 Parallel Russian River Chardonnay got us hooked.  With a year of age in the bottle, a candied yam and bright orange juciness wowed us with a paradigm twist of creamy, rich and buttery outer core.”

“Parallel Wines has been coveted and whispered about in local circles but lately that whisper is becoming more of a clamor. Their branding is youthful, hip, and pays homage to their love of skiing and vineyards. And their bold and flavorful wines, despite being limited and made by famous winemaker Philippe Melka, are very reasonably priced. Taste just about any time at Vintners Collective in Downtown Napa or call to schedule a cave tour.”
