2019 Blackbird Vineyards Arriviste
Everyone loves an upstart...
Inspired by "les gitanes", the gypsies of St. Emilion, Blackbird Vineyards' Arriviste captures the high-spirited nature of winemaking. This vibrant, puckish rosé conjures images of summer twilights and harvest moons. While it hints at the flavors of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon that frame it, Arriviste is not a wine to demystify. It is simply a wine to enjoy.
"The 2019 Arriviste captures the vintage’s outstanding growing conditions in a mouthwatering package: a Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc saignee blend with dark peach color and striking aromas of cherry, violet, iris and Oolong tea. Flavors of cherry, nectarine, blackberry, and grapefruit combine for a rich, full flavored rosé with balanced acidity. Finishes long and silky with plum, black currant, raspberry, and pineapple." Winemaker, Aaron Pott
