2018 Blackbird Arise Red Blend

Not only is the price of gas at an all time high, Napa Cabernet’s and blends are not too far behind. But when you discover an affordable hidden gem that tastes better than some 90% of the overpriced wannabes, time to run, not walk, to seek and enjoy. This Napa blend consists of 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc, 6% Syrah and 4% Petit Verdot, that starts off with a vibrant perfumed nose of herbs and chocolate. Its dense purple hue offers juicy notes of blackberry, cherry, plum and red currant fruit, with silky vanilla and licorice added to the mix. Its long velvety finish and beautiful structure is the icing on the cake. Very age worthy, this meat lovers beauty should find a comfy home in every red wine lovers cellar.
