There's no substitution for quality at Blackbird Vineyards, as winemaker Aaron Pott strives to produce terroir-driven wines. These wines will have your palate dancing around every savory sip. 

Blackbird Vineyards is without a doubt one of Napa's most celebrated wineries,and this wine, is produced by them.

Founded by a Napa Valley native with a fervent love for winemaking, Cloudview Cellars is the realization of a lifelong dream. The winery’s name, inspired by countless hours spent gazing at the ethereal skies of Napa Valley, symbolizes the transformation of dreams into reality. Today, the family continues this legacy, blending tradition with modern technology to produce wines of exceptional character.

Nestled in Oakley, California, the Del Barba Vineyard is a testament to resilience and dedication. Planted over 100 years ago in pure sand, these Zinfandel and Petite Sirah vines have thrived despite the encroaching urban landscape. Tom and Fred Del Barba, the stewards of this heritage vineyard, nurture the vines with unwavering care, ensuring that every bottle of Cloudview Red Blend is imbued with their deep-rooted love for the land.

The 2020 Cloudview Red Blend is a captivating cuvée of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Cabernet Sauvignon. This “mixed blacks” blend harks back to the traditional winemaking methods of the 20th century, producing a wine that is bold, fruit-forward, and utterly delicious.

Del Barba Vineyard, situated in Contra Costa, where the San Joaquin and Sacramento rivers meet, is a vineyard that features meticulously trained vines in the deep Dehli blow sand. This sand is made up of decomposed granite from the Sierra Mountains, which lends the resulting wine a smooth texture, refined tannins, and rich, saline-infused dark fruits. This combination beautifully captures the essence of the delta's finest characteristics.

The 2020 Cloudview Red Blend pairs beautifully with grilled meats, hearty stews, and aged cheeses. Its robust flavor profile complements rich dishes, making it an ideal choice for your next dinner party or special occasion.

Tasting Notes: 76% Zinfandel 12% Cabernet Sauvignon 12% Petite Sirah.

 

A seamless cuvée of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Cabernet Sauvignon that, blended, produces a bold, fruit-forward, and delicious, with a dense, dark ruby core. Its aromas are led by sun-kissed blackberry, lilac, and roses, with a brushstroke of eucalyptus and cassis. The mouthfeel is equally joyful, with a mountain of flavor and richness balanced with a hint of acidity and well-rounded tannins that resolve in a long finish.
