Food Pairings for Blackbird Vineyards Contrarian
"The 2009 Contrarian opens with expressive scents of toffee, dark chocolate, blackberry, and smooth vanilla. On the palate, flavors of black fruit complement layers of intricately structured fine-grained tannins that hold great density and weight. The finish is polished, supple, and harmoniously precise. This wine is delicious now and will also age well over time. Blackbird’s 2009 vintage wines showcase grapes farmed with an ideal hang time, offering wines with bright flavors, balanced sugars, and acidity." -Winery
