Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90

(a Bordeaux blend based on 53% merlot): Bright dark red. Cassis, licorice, chocolate and loam on the nose, lifted by violet. Bright, chewy and dry on the palate, with cherry fruit complicated by herbs, earth, spices and licorice. The tannins are a bit dusty and the finish slightly herbal but this wine shows a lovely restrained sweetness and finishes with good shape and length.

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.
