Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | 89

The 2005 Paramour, a blend of equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc, is an elegant red offering subtle notes of mint, sweet cherries, black currants, raspberries, cedar, and sweet oak. It cuts a medium-bodied, elegant, silky path across the palate.

About This Producer

With the designation of Napa's fourteenth AVA in 2004, Oak Knoll District is now poised to bring forth the prominence and elegance of Merlot from this region. Perched to seize the day as Oak Knoll's foremost Merlot is Blackbird Vineyards, located in the heart of the district.

Since 1999, this former walnut orchard, first planted with 5717 vines two years earlier, has quietly provided fruit to many of Napa's finest winemakers, for whom it has yielded astonishing reviews and stellar scorings. Purchased by entrepreneur Michael Polenske in 2003, Blackbird Vineyards is now an ultra premium label in its own right.
