Blackbird Vineyards Illustration 2007
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
A spectacular wine that gets better and better with every sip. It's dramatic from the get-go, with rich, fine tannins framing extraordinarily good flavors of blackberries, black currants, anise, dark chocolate and cedar. Superb structure, great length and finish, with perfect acidity. A joy to drink. Now-2016.
Dense and tightly wound, with rich aromas of currant and brushy wildflowers and concentrated, tannic flavors of plum, espresso, green olive and fresh earth. Patience required. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Best from 2011 through 2015.
