The 2009 Paramour offers exquisite aromas of blackberry, blueberry and mint. This authentic expression of Cabernet Franc showcases layers of chocolate and nutmeg and combines with fine-grained tannin and cedar overlay. The supple finish is round and balanced, providing persistent length of flavor. Paramour will continue to develop with time in the bottle for the next decade or more. Blackbird's 2009 vintage wines showcase grapes farmed from a lower-yielding harvest that produced lithe wines with European-style texture and pronounced complexity.
