A Night with Blackbird Vineyards

About the Event
Blackbird Vineyards (formerly a walnut orchard) are entirely planted to Merlot and over the years this vineyard has provided fruit to many very high end Napa wineries including Shafer, Viader, and Lail. You may have heard about Napa’s “Cult Cabernet” wineries, however you never hear about a Napa cult Merlot – but if there was one, Blackbird would probably be the closest fit. Based on the size of their vineyard they do not make a lot of wine each year. The focus every vintage is on three red wine blends – each of which contains significant percentages of Merlot. This class will demonstrate the capabilities of Merlot when in the hands of the right winemakers who understand the varietal and how to get it to reach it's full potential.
