Exquisite aromas of violets, cedar, blueberry, and coffee envelop the nose of this classically-styled Cabernet Franc-blend. On the palate, layers of dark cherry, bramble, iron, and savory herbs combine with fine-grained tannins leading to a supple, round, and persistent finish. The most elegant of the Blackbird wines, Paramour will continue to develop for enjoyment over the next decade or more.

A blend of 52% Cabernet Franc, 34% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2013 Paramour Proprietary Red is my favorite of the quartet. This wine shows wonderful forest floor and floral notes, blueberry and black raspberry, a dense ruby/purple color, a rich, full-bodied mouthfeel, but a sense of lightness and finesse. It's a beautifully crafted and articulated wine with terrific precision and purity. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

This proprietary blend combines 52% Cabernet Franc, 34% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, another in its line of Aaron Pott-made wines. It's lovable in its austerity and varietal suggestions of dried herb, cedar and green bean. Dusty, soft tannins support a full-bodied, straightforward structure.
