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 2017 Arriviste is a sophisticated, salmon-pink colored rosé of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. On the nose, alluring aromas of strawberry and stone fruit come together with hints of white flowers. The wine enchants with richly textured flavors of tart cherry, crisp red apple, and citrus on the mid-palate, carrying clean minerality and bright acidity on the lingering finish." Winemaker, Aaron Pott
