Blackbird Vineyards’ Paramour possesses both sensuality and commanding structure. Cabernet Franc and
Merlot have a fragile but irresistible chemistry that flourishes when climate, soils and seasons align. Paramour
reveals the passion and harmony embodied in this love affair.

"The 2018 Paramour shows all of the perfume and grace of Cabernet Franc, which drives the blend. Crushed red berry fruit, spice, raspberry jam and wild flowers all open up with time. Medium in body and full of character, the Paramour is terrific. A whole range of sweet floral and mineral notes punctuates the finish."
