Blackbird Vineyards 2007 Contrarian Red (Napa Valley)

Give this young wine some time in the cellar to let the tannins drop out. Right now, it's a bit hard and astringent, although it's so rich in fruit that a good decanting will let you enjoy it. Shows a molten core of blackberries, crème de cassis, cocoa and cedar, with a mineral undertow. Dramatic wine.
