Blackbird Vineyards Arise Red 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The 2016 Arise is a very pretty wine. Lifted and floral, with lovely brightness from the Cabernet Franc in the blend, the 2016 is super-expressive today. Bright red cherry, rose petal and mint notes add freshness to this attractive, mid-weight red from Blackbird. -- Antonio Galloni
This proprietary blend is dominant in Merlot and Cabernet Franc, its tannins burly and cradled in sizable helpings of toasted oak. Juicy red fruit is seasoned in dried herb, clove and pencil shavings.
