A proprietary blend of 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc and 32% Merlot, Contrarian is coolly stylized, shining in acidity with highlights of dried herb, cedar and clove. The oak is there but not ridiculously so.
Score: 91 points -- Wine Enthusiast
"Bold and expressive with aromas of black cherry, fresh cracked pepper, and bay leaves, Contrarian is sure to impress. Notes of black currant, blackberry, salted caramel, and sweet herbs are complimented by intrepid tannins that carry through to a long, lingering finish. This wine is stunning now and will continue to develop with time in the cellar."
