    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2009 Arise reveals an arresting perfume of cherry, blackberry, fig, and cedar. Aged in French Oak barrels for 21 months, the chewy mid-palate presents enticing flavors of plum and spice within structured layers of red fruit. Blackbird's 2009 vintage wines showcase grapes farmed with an ideal hang time, offering wines with bright flavors, balanced sugars, and acidity. Drinking well upon release, Arise will age beautifully with time in the cellar.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A glorious wine. Based on Merlot, with nearly equal parts of the two Cabernets, it's softly smooth and delicious right now. Totally bone dry, yet rich and sweet in cherries, berries, chocolate and cedar, it satisfies on every level. Editors' Choice

    Bright, chewy and dry on the palate...This wine shows a lovely restrained sweetness and finishes with good shape and length.
