2016 Dissonance
Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Please don't wear red tonight...

This Napa Valley white wine brings dissonance to the rhythm of Blackbird's right bank-inspired red blends. The bright acidity of cool climate Sauvignon Blanc is brought into harmony with with the round, lush notes of Semillon.

"The 2016 Dissonance exudes aromas of ripe peaches, citrus, crisp green apple, and white flowers. This wine lingers on the palate with bright acidity and vibrant flavors of lemon zest, strawberry, honeydew, and nutmeg. Sourced from vineyards in the Carneros region of Napa Valley, this cool climate Sauvignon Blanc is richly complimented through aging and stirring of the lees in French oak barrels, enhancing the aromatics and texture of the wine."Winemaker, Aaron Pott
