2013 Blackbird Vineyards Arise 1.5L
Tasting Notes: The 2013 Arise exudes aromas of black currant, iris, and nutmeg. With flavors of licorice, cherry and fig, this wine has a richly layered mid palate with soft texture, good density and a long, lingering finish.
Winemaker's Notes: Harvested, vinified, and aged with an identical commitment to quality as our principal wines, this classic Napa blend comprised of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon expresses luscious flavors that can only come from exceptional fruit. Harvested in the Fall of 2013, the wine was aged 21 months in French Oak casks (50% Used, 50% Seasoned). The wine was bottled in the Fall of 2015 with a final alcohol of 14.5%.
