This Napa Valley white wine brings dissonance to the rhythm of Blackbird's right bank-inspired red blends. The bright
acidity of cool climate Sauvignon Blanc is brought into harmony with with the round, lush notes of Semillon.

"The 2017 Dissonance exudes aromas of pear, honeydew melon, acacia, honeycomb, apricot and pineapple. This wine shares bright acidity and vibrant flavors pear, gooseberry and honey on the midpalate. The finish is long with pear and cantaloupe in a slow to fade crescendo." Winemaker, Aaron Pott
The 2017 Dissonance exudes aromas of pear, honeydew melon, acacia, honeycomb, apricot and pineapple.
