Additional Wine Information

Story
Parallel is the realization of both the dream and the friendships of four couples who met skiing the slopes of Park City, Utah, where all of them lived or spent significant time. Of course, apr.s-ski involved sharing a good meal and bottles of great wine, which cemented the love of life and dreams of these eight friends. The name Parallel denotes many things— shared passions, ski tracks in the snow, rows of vines in a vineyard. These are symbolically represented by the artfully designed label, which debuted on the first Cabernet Sauvignon released by the team in 2005. The team was lucky enough to hire on superstar winemaker Philippe Melka, who has crafted the wines since the beginning. The year 2008 was a dramatic vintage with temperature swings ranging from frost to heat waves. For all the twists and turns, the quantity was low and the quality high, as Melka and the Parallel team demonstrate with this classic beauty.
Sense
An effusive heart of cassis, black plum, mocha, cedar and vanilla defines this wine’s aroma.
Savor
A smoky, cedary edge lines the wine’s deep core of ripe, juicy black fruit. Irresistibly lush and complex, the wine is nevertheless balanced and wellproportioned between luscious Napa fruit and savory, earthy side notes.
Serve
The gorgeously flowing structure of Parallel’s Cabernet Sauvignon provides a wealth of food-pairing options. While typical matches like well-marbled steaks, chops and roasts will work beautifully, lighter meats such as veal and pork make excellent choices as well. For accent flavors, pick up the wine’s earthy elements with bell peppers, mushrooms, eggplant or root vegetables, or look to fresh green herbs. For lovely pairings try Black Pepper and Mustard Braised Short Ribs or Algerian Lamb Shanks with Cardamom and Orange (recipes at williams-sonoma.com).
Serving Instructions
Serve a little cooler than room temperature: refrigerate the bottle for 10 minutes before serving.
