Blackbird Vineyards "Illustration" Proprietary Red United States Red Red Blend California Napa Valley 2007

Member Review by Nicki Gig:

dense nose of plums, black cherries, a little mulberry. very elegant on the palate offering a little dark cocoa, dark berry fruit, currants, and coffee, delicate characteristics to it yet full bodied and deeply complex

Founded in 2003 by Michael Polenske, Blackbird Vineyards is an artisanal producer of Pomerol inspired wines from the Napa Valley. Planted in 1997, the estate vineyard is located in the heart of the Oak Knoll District—a region appreciated for its moderate climate and deep, gravelly soils. The vineyard’s valley floor topography presents optimum growing conditions for consulting winemaker Sarah Gott and winemaker Aaron Pott to produce elegantly styled, appropriately balanced red wines that offer short and long term cellaring potential. Limited quantities are available through an allocated mailing list direct from the winery and in the finer restaurants and hotels around the world. Blackbird Vineyards is closed to the public but its portfolio of wines can be tasted at Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley in Yountville, CA. www.maisonry.com Read less
