Wine Details & Tasting Notes

93-Points Wine Enthusiast
This blend combines 64% Merlot with 34% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon to nice effect, offering cranberry and red, juicy plum around softly cradled tannins and well-resolved oak. Juicy, structured and fully balanced, the finish sparks elements of leather with tobacco. (VB) (8/2015)

92-Points Vinous
The 2012 Illustration, Blackbird's Merlot-based blend, brings together power and silkiness with unusual grace. Drink this supple, racy red over the next handful of years, while the flavors remain juicy and vibrant. (AG)  (12/2014)

91-Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A Merlot-dominated cuvée (75%-80% Merlot), the 2012 Proprietary Red Illustration is a sexy, chocolaty style of wine offering notes of ink, kirsch and black fruits. (RP)  (10/2014)
