2015 "The Killers" Contrarian Napa Valley Proprietary Red Wine

by Bespoke Collection

The Killers Signature Series Contrarian

This one-of-a-kind bottling commemorates BottleRock 2018. The Blackbirds depicted on the front label represent the carefully selected notes from The Killers’ track, “Wonderful Wonderful.” The song was inspired when the band’s lead vocalist, Brandon Flowers, was in the desert one day and witnessed a storm headed his way. Rather than worry, he thought to himself “Wonderful, wonderful!” Contrarian is a textured blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot, possessing both an aromatic richness and subtle tannin profile. It exudes Blackbird’s elegance, while displaying the regal posture that comes from superior Napa Valley Bordeaux-style varietals. Contrarian’s uniquely supple structure flouts convention.
