This Napa Valley white wine brings dissonance to the rhythm of Blackbird's right bank-inspired red blends. The bright
acidity of cool climate Sauvignon Blanc is brought into harmony with with the round, lush notes of Semillon.

"The 2020 Dissonance shines with a beautiful, complex bouquet of mango, acacia flower, honey, and toasted almond. Tropical fruit flavors delight on the palate with bright acidity upon first sip. The mid-palate is soft and balanced, leading into a finish of guava and passion fruit that lingers on the tongue. Sourced from vineyards in the Carneros and Knights Valley regions, this cool climate Sauvignon Blanc is richly complemented through aging and stirring of the lees in French oak barrels."
