50% Merlot, 50% Cab Franc
5 cases produced
This wine is a balanced blend of Merlot from the Blackbird Vineyards Estate and Cabernet Franc from a single vineyard in the St. Helena appellation.
Founded in 2003 by Michael Polenske, Blackbird Vineyards is an artisanal producer of Pomerol-inspired wines from the Napa Valley. Planted in 1997, the estate vineyard is located in the heart of the Oak Knoll District—a region appreciated for its moderate climate and deep, gravelly soils. The vineyard’s valley floor topography presents optimum growing conditions for winemaker Sarah Gott to produce an elegantly styled, appropriately balanced red wine that offers short- and long-term cellaring potential.
