Winemaker Notes & Critical Acclaim:

The 2016 Arise offers a rich attack with sweet, plush tannins and notes of cherry, plum, and smoked duck in a long finish of coffee, plum, and blueberry. An ideal 2016 harvest season resulted in rich fruit of uncompromised character. The 2016 Arise is Blackbird at its core of supple winemaking. Blend: 55% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. - Winemaker Note

The 2016 Arise Proprietary Red is a blend of 55% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. It has a deep garnet-purple color and opens with fragrant black cherries, black raspberries and warm plums scents with hints of underbrush, dried herbs, raspberry leaves and spice box. Medium-bodied and elegantly styled in the mouth, the palate has great vivacity with a grainy texture and long, lively finish. - 92 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Big and ripe, with good cut to the notes of dried green herbs that accent the dark plum, dried berry and chocolate nib flavors. The lithe finish offers lively minerality. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2022. - 90 Points Wine Spectator
