Bluebird is a new blend for us, two-thirds estate Cabernet Sauvignon and one-third estate Cabernet Franc
Bluebird refers to the graceful tannins and silky textures of this extraordinarily pretty vintage
Bluebird also refers to the many sightings we experienced that spring in the vineyards, sky and land
Your wine was made from vines more than 20 years old and at their peak of health, showing remarkable depth and grace
This 2019 blend shows a finesse and fineness of silky texture unlike anything we have seen in over 40 years of farming and making high elevation mountain wines on our Spring Mountain Estate. The flight and beauty of the Bluebird seemed to capture the essence of this singular wine and gave us a feeling of connection of the sky, land and wine.
Wine was dry farmed
Wine is 100% estate grown and bottled
