Blackbird Vineyards Arriviste Rose 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
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 2018 Arriviste is a sophisticated, salmon-pink rosé of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. On the nose, striking aromas of strawberry, plum, and orange zest come together. A spicy mid palate of red fruits with acidity that is balanced; it finishes with pear, peach and cherry in a lengthy finish."
Winemaker, Aaron Pott
