Great wine! Big and bold, full of dark fruits, velvety smooth. Hope CWC brings this back for future vintages!

This has such a wonderful berry and floral taste, a little reminiscent of Pinot but much more flavorful and bold. I had this at a wine bar a few years ago and have been searching for it ever since. Thanks CWC for bringing it back to me. -20 Points

European throwback! In the US acceptable winery isn't always revered but in Europe if you are fortunate enough to be offered someone table wine you are in for a wine tasting treasure. Blackbird takes you to Italy without ever leaving your home. Just ordered a case! -20 Points
