2016 Blackbird Vineyards Contrarian

Share on Facebook

64% Cabernet Sauvignon - 29% Cabernet Franc - 7% Merlot



21 months in French oak barrels - 75% new, 25% seasoned



Complex and expressive with aromas of black currant, cherry and black périgold truffle, Contrarian is ripe to impress with its notable density, tight tannins and illustrious texture. With a long finish of black licorice, blackberries, plum and toffee, the vintage evolves tremendously on the palate. This wine is captivating now and will continue to develop in the cellar for another 15 years.
