This special blend commemorates Blackbird Vineyard’s 10th anniversary of winemaking. With an ingrained focus to diversity of varietals and terroir, Blackbird is unwavering in their commitment to craft wines of distinction – for near-term enjoyment and long-term aging potential. The 2012 vintage is exemplary, and truly personifies the belief that Blackbird is Born to Fly.
"The 2012 Denary Cuvée offers exquisite aromas of blackberry, blueberry and tobacco. This predominately Cabernet Franc blend celebrates the tenth anniversary of winemaking for Blackbird Vineyards. Showcasing textured layers of chocolate and nutmeg combined with fine-grained tannin and cedar overlay, the supple finish is round and balanced, providing persistent length of flavor. With no frost, a mild spring and summer and a peaceful Fall, the 2012 vintage was what some describe as an ideal growing season."Winemaker, Aaron Pott
