Nose: With enticing aromas of rich dark fruits, black licorice, cocoa, and lavender, Illustration is the most luxurious wine in the Blackbird portfolio. Palate: Teeming flavors of blackberry, plum, cola, and cedar envelop the palate, amplifying the rich texture and supple tannins. This wine is drinking beautifully upon release and will continue to develop with time in the cellar.

Wine AdvocateA blend of 65% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot is the 2014 Proprietary Red Illustration. Like it siblings, this is aged 17 months in French cooperage, of which about half is new. This is a beauty - Old World meets New World so to speak - with good tannin structure and acidity, but terrific ripe fruit of crème de cassis, black chocolate intermixed with licorice and espresso bean. This is a full-bodied, juicy, opulent style of wine to drink over the next 15 or so years.
