Winemaker's Notes

The 2009 Paramour offers exquisite aromas of blackberry, blueberry, and rich coffee on the nose. Detailed layers of black cherry combine with fine-grained tannin and cedar overlay. The succulent finish is round and balanced, providing persistent length of flavor. Paramour will continue to develop with time in the bottle for the next decade or more. Blackbird’s 2009 vintage wines showcase grapes farmed with an ideal hang time, offering wines with bright flavors, balanced sugars, and acidity.

61% Cabernet Franc - 25% Merlot - 14% Cabernet Sauvignon
