Winemaker Notes: With a bright approach of blueberry, black cherry, cedar, porcini mushrooms, and mint, the wine shines on the nose of this Cabernet Franc dominant blend. Wonderful richness of violets, plum and chocolate and gives way to tight grain tanins with a supple finish on the palate.

Blend: 82% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Wilfred Wong - “I have often wondered in California could create some Right Bank magic? Since Cabernet Sauvignon has gone unchallenged for so long, how could Cabernet Franc measure up? The 2016 Blackbird Vineyards Paramour—made with 82% Cabernet Franc—is proof that the Golden State can do this. This is a magnificent wine. Its beautiful and refined aromas and flavors of ripe black fruit and anise stay lovingly long on the palate. Pair it with a delicious Porchetta and enjoy the wizardry of exceptional winemaking. ”


Robert Parker - “Composed of 82% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 Paramour Proprietary Red is deep garnet-purple colored and features notes of tar, tilled black soil, fungi and oolong tea over a core of red and black currants, black raspberries and crushed plums. Medium-bodied with a chewy, stewed tea-laced frame, it delivers loads of bright, refreshing flavors and a quiet, earthy intensity on the finish.”
