Blackbird Vineyards Contrarian Red Blend 2010



add to cart

A blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot, the 2010 Proprietary Red Contrarian is a beauty of purity, symmetry, harmony and pure Napa fruit. Abundant notes of blue and black fruits, sweet tannin, and enough acidity for delineation and freshness result in a stunningly impressive wine to drink over the next 10-12 years.

93 points from Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Winery Notes:

The 2010 Contrarian opens with expressive notes of leather, truffle, succulent currant and lavender. On the palate, flavors of black fruit complement layers of intricately structured, fine-grained tannins that hold great density and weight. The lush mid-palate leads to a polished, supple and harmoniously-precise finish. This wine is gratifying now and will age gloriously with time in the cellar. Blackbird’s 2010 vintage wines showcase grapes farmed from a lower-yielding harvest that produced lithe wines with European-style texture and pronounced complexity
