Blackbird Vineyards Contrarian Napa Valley 2016

“Contrarian flies in the face of our own conventions. Emboldened by Cabernet Sauvignon, Contrarian possesses Blackbird’s signature aromatic richness alongside bold tannins that draw a striking contrast to the rest of the flock”. Uniquely, therefore, from Blackbird, this is a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend. Complex and expressive with aromas of blackcurrant, cherry and truffle, Contrarian is ripe to impress with its notable density, tight tannins and illustrious texture: rich, concentrated, and intense. With a long finish of black liquorice, blackberries, plum and toffee, this evolves temendously on the palate. Captivating now and will contine to develop in the cellar for another 15 years. 

64% Cabernet Sauvignon; 29% Cabernet Franc; 7% Merlot. 21 months in French oak barrels, 75% new. From Ballard Vineyard, Hudson Vineyard, and Stagecoach Vineyard.
