Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90(+?)

(61% merlot, 20% cabernet franc and 19% cabernet sauvignon; the highest in alcohol of these 2010 reds, at 14.8%; the other three show 14.5% on the label): Dark red with ruby highlights. Sexy aromas of black raspberry, dark chocolate, licorice, minerals and flowers. Sappy and densely packed, with crushed raspberry, kirsch and licorice flavors accented by distinctly cool pepper and herb notes. There's explosive black cherry fruit here but this sharply delineated, vibrant wine is extremely young and clenched today. The firm tannins are more than supported by strong fruit. Finishes with terrific energy and sneaky 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.
