Harvested, vinified, and aged with an identical commitment to quality as our principal wines, this classic Napa blend comprised of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon expresses luscious flavors that can only come from exceptional fruit.
"The 2015 Arise’s aromas of ripe blackberries, black currant, iris, forest floor, and clove are nothing short of charming, and just as every artist needs a muse, Arise is - without a doubt - the muse for Blackbird’s current collection. With flavors of licorice, black cherry, nutty fig, cocoa powder, and tobacco this wine has a richly layered mid-palate that is complimented by smooth tannins, good density, and a long, lingering finish."Winemaker, Aaron Pott
