Product description

Illustration is the most decadent of the Blackbird wines, scented with dark fruits, chocolate, flowers, and licorice. The palate is dense with abundant flavors of plum, blackberry, sarsaparilla, and eucalyptus. The rich texture envelops the lithe tannins for a luscious mouthfeel and rich finish. Drinking well upon release, Illustration will age beautifully with time in the cellar. Blend: 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast    Letting Merlot lead the way at 78%, this red also includes 21% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon. Chocolate and plum define a core of tension and structure, the fruit expansive on the palate and seasoned in savory spice.
