2015 Arriviste
Everyone loves an upstart...

The 2015 Arriviste is an elegant, salmon-pink colored rosé of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. On the nose, strawberry and iris aromas meld with hints of tropical fruit. The wine showcases crisp flavors of tart cherry, red apple and cool citrus on the mid-palate, carrying clean minerality and bright acidity on to the lingering finish.

34% Merlot - 34% Cabernet Franc - 32% Cabernet Sauvignon
2015 Dissonance
Please don't wear red tonight...

The 2015 Dissonance exudes aromas of ripe stone fruit, acacia flower, citrus, and crisp green apple. This wine lingers on the palate with bright acidity and vibrant flavors of honeydew, nutmeg, lemon zest, and strawberry.

100% Sauvignon Blanc
2014 Arise
Every artist needs a muse...

The 2014 Arise entices with aromas of black currant, freshly-picked summer blackberries, cedar stick, and roasted clove. With flavors of licorice, pipe tobacco, Bing cherry, and nutty fig, this wine has a richly layered mid-palate that is complimented by soft texture, good density, and a long, lingering finish.

38% Merlot - 32% Cabernet Sauvignon - 30% Cabernet Franc
2013 Illustration
The heart is full of infinite possibilities...

Illustration is the most decadent of the Blackbird wines, scented with dark fruits, chocolate, flowers, and licorice. The palate is dense with abundant flavors of plum, blackberry, sarsaparilla, and eucalyptus. The rich texture envelops the lithe tannins for a luscious mouthfeel and rich finish. Drinking well upon release, Illustration will age beautifully with time in the cellar.

60% Merlot - 30% Cabernet Franc - 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
2013 Paramour
Wine and the sensuous go hand in hand...

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.

52% Cabernet Franc - 34% Merlot - 14% Cabernet Sauvignon
2013 Contrarian
Vive les différences...

Commanding and expressive with savory notes of black cherry, truffle, pepper, and bay, Contrarian is the most powerful of the Blackbird trio. Black currant, toffee, sweet herbs, and espresso are framed by well-structured, bold tannins that crescendo with lush fruit into a long finish. While the wine is gratifying now, Contrarian will age gloriously with time in the cellar.

36% Cabernet Sauvignon - 32% Cabernet Franc - 32% Merlot
