93-Points, Wine Enthusiast — “Just beautiful to drink now...the wine’s flavors are simply delicious, offering waves of cherries, blueberries, plums and currants. Plenty of new oak adds toasty vanilla. Pair this wine with rich foods, such as lamb.”

93-Points, Ken’s Wine Guide — “The flavor profile is a tasty black currant and boysenberry blend with notes of oak and anise. I also detected hints of blueberry and espresso. The finish is dry and its moderate fine tannins are sticky and linger for quite some time.”

Winemaker Aaron Pott’s Notes — “Blackbird Vineyard’s Contrarion is crafted by passion and instinct. This textured blend of Merlot (24%), Cabernet Franc (41%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (35%) possesses both an aromatic richness and subtle tannin profile. It exudes the Pomerol-inspired elegance Blackbird Vineyards’ wines are known for, while displaying the regal posture that comes from superior Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.”
