Blackbird Vineyards Contrarian Red 2012
Save $60.00 (34%)
The 2012 Contrarian opens with expressive notes of succulent blackberry and peppercorn. On the palate, flavors of plum and mocha complement silky layers of intricately structured, fine-grained tannins that hold great density and weight. The lush mid-palate leads to a supple, approachable and harmoniously-precise finish. This wine is gratifying now and will age gloriously with time in the cellar.
Wine EnthusiastA majority of Cabernet Franc combines with 23% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Merlot. The result is a dense expression of cherry, strawberry and vanilla, sharp on the tongue in tar and tobacco, the tannins tightly wound.
