2007 Blackbird Vineyards Arise

Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) The 2008 Arise welcomes you with complex aromatics of cherry, plum, bacon, tobacco, and subtle mint. Aged in French Oak barrels for 19 months, the well-integrated palate presents enticing flavors of cedar, earth, and toffee within multiple layers of rich, black fruits. Elegantly balanced with supple tannins, the mouthfeel is velvety and leads to a fine cocoa finish.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2007 Arise reflects an aromatic nose of rhubarb, cherry, and wild raspberries. The approachable, yet dense palate is dominated by red fruits, plum, and enticing smoky-savory notes. An inviting wine in its youth, Arise offers fine-grained tannins combined with impressive structure and balance.
