Winemaker Notes

The nose opens with an arresting and inviting perfume, revealing concentrated aromas of wild blueberries, violets and black currants. The textured palate is commanding in its fruit intensity and depth, with the wine flaunting a round, polished center and a velvety mouthfeel. Robust flavors of black cherry and blueberry evolve in the glass, leaving way to a savory, prolonged finish.

Blend: 48% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Franc, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Dense and complex, with a touch of velvet to smooth it out. Aromas of black currant and espresso lead to layered cherry, blueberry and cedar flavors that finish with ripe, loamy tannins. Needs time. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Blackbird Vineyards
Perched to seize the day as Oak Knoll's foremost Merlot is Blackbird Vineyards, located in the heart of the district. Since 1999, this former walnut orchard, first planted with 5717 vines two years earlier, has quietly provided fruit to many of Napa's finest winemakers, for whom it has yielded astonishing reviews and stellar scorings. Purchased by entrepreneur Michael Polenske in 2003, Blackbird Vineyards is now an ultra premium label in its own right. (Fittingly, 'Merlot' is French patois for 'Little Blackbird.')

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
