Blackbird 2009 Proprietary Red Blend Contrarian

The flavor profile is a tasty black currant and boysenberry blend with notes of oak and anise. I also detected hints of blueberry and espresso. The finish is dry and its moderate fine tannins are sticky and linger for quite some time. Rich and complex in style; a firm, well balanced wine with evident oak character and blackberry-cassis fruitiness. [+]
