    The four proprietary reds are all various blends of Bordeaux varieties. The 2014 Proprietary Red Arise is a blend of 38% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc. It shows notes of white chocolate, blackcurrants, black cherry, licorice and roasted herbs with a hint of mocha, a dark ruby/plum color and a medium to full body with a sight herbal edge. The wine is chewy, round, juicy and best drunk over the next 10-15 years.

  • 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.
