Harvested, vinified, and aged with an identical commitment to quality as our principal wines, this classic Napa blend comprised of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon expresses luscious flavors that can only come from exceptional fruit.

"The 2015 Arise’s aromas of ripe blackberries, black currant, iris, forest floor, and clove are nothing short of charming, and just as every artist needs a muse, Arise is - without a doubt - the muse for Blackbird’s current collection. With flavors of licorice, black cherry, nutty fig, cocoa powder, and tobacco this wine has a richly layered mid-palate that is complimented by smooth tannins, good density, and a long, lingering finish." Winemaker, Aaron Pott

Purely Domestic Wine Report

"The wine conjures up old-school Napa Valley simplicity with a solid nose of supple fruit punctuated by new oak, black cherry, plum and cedar. Lush, polished velvet on palate entry it has a creamy core of blackberry and plum with notes of incense."

"Composed of 37% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Arise Proprietary Red is a deep garnet-purple color with a nose of freshly crushed blackberries and blueberries with hints of cigar box, spice box, wild thyme and menthol. The full-bodied, generous mouth is nice and spicy, with fine-grained tannins and nice harmony and freshness."

"The 2015 Arise is Blackbird's second wine. Succulent red cherry and plum fruit give the wine its forward, juicy personality. Soft, open-knit and inviting, this delicious red is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next 2-3 years. This is a gorgeous wine from Blackbird."
