Blackbird Vineyards Arriviste Rose 2015


SKU 855326003019


The 2015 Arriviste is an elegant, salmon-pink colored rosé of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. On the nose, strawberry and iris aromas meld with hints of tropical fruit. The wine showcases crisp flavors of tart cherry, red apple and cool citrus on the mid-palate, carrying clean minerality and bright acidity on to the lingering finish. The 2015 Napa Valley growing season saw near-optimal conditions, allowing for an abundance of perfectly-ripe grapes with a smooth balance of acids and sugars, producing this spectacular rosé.

Wine EnthusiastWinemaker Aaron Pott saignées nearly equal parts Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon to craft this impressively complex, light-bodied and ethereal celebration of cranberry, strawberry and grapefruit. It shows more tartness on the finish as it pushes a final, refreshing suggestion of mandarin orange.
