Blackbird Vineyards 2019 Arriviste Rosé
"The 2019 Arriviste captures the vintage’s outstanding growing conditions in a mouthwatering package: a Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc saignee blend with dark peach color and striking aromas of cherry, violet, iris and Oolong tea. Flavors of cherry, nectarine, blackberry, and grapefruit combine for a rich, full flavored rosé with balanced acidity. Finishes long and silky with plum, black currant, raspberry, and pineapple."
Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc
About Blackbird Vineyards:
Owned by Michael Polenske, Blackbird Vineyards and winemaker Aaron Pott specialize in sustainably farmed, terroir driven, right-bank Bordeaux style wines. Named after flocks of starlings that would fly over the vineyards every year, Blackbird has a double meaning for the winery as Merlot (the main grape of right-bank Brodeaux) translates to Blackbird.
