Blackbird Vineyards – Arise 2012 – Napa Valley

(58% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) The nose reveals notes of mocha and black berries (blackberry, cassis) combined with touches of truffle, black pepper, clove and wood. The palate is fruity, smooth, well structured and reveals a small minerality. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of black cherry, blackberry and slight notes of raspberry / cherry (in background) associated with fine notes of cassis, mocha, oak and coconut / vanilla on the finish. Tannins are fine and dusty. Good length.
