2018 Blackbird Red Wine

100% estate grown Blackbird was barrel aged for two years and is a true reserve wine.  Grapes were hand-harvested at optimal ripeness from our 10-year-old lakeside vineyard that is farmed using bio-intensive viticulture.  The result is elegant, complex and earthy, with excellent length and ageability.  133 cases were produced.  62% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot.

Tasting notes:  Medium ruby color with aromas of cherry, pine, eucalyptus and flowers.  Medium body with palate-cleansing acidity and flavors of dried hay, tobacco and vanilla.  Long finish shows flinty minerality.

Harvest notes: 2018 was the most challenging year in a generation due to tremendous rainfall late in the season, but our meticulous vineyard practices, including summer thinning, leaf removal and bio-intensive disease control produced a small but ripe crop.  Hand-harvest and sorting at the vine occurred between October 14-21, 2018.
