Paramour possesses both sensuality and commanding structure. Merlot and Cabernet Franc have a fragile but irresistible chemistry that flourishes when climate, soils and seasons align. The grapes allotted for this graceful red wine are grown in only the most auspicious conditions. Paramour reveals the passionate relationship between these two varietals and between winegrower and land.
"Exquisite aromas of violets, cedar, blueberry, and coffee envelop the nose of this classically-styled Cabernet Franc-blend. On the palate, layers of dark cherry, bramble, iron, and savory herbs combine with fine-grained tannins leading to a supple, round, and persistent finish. The most elegant of the Blackbird wines, Paramour will continue to develop for enjoyment over the next decade or more. "Winemaker, Aaron Pott
