Blue Rock 'Baby Blue' Red 2017 - 750ml
Blue Rock Estate
Blue Rock was first settled by poor Italian immigrants who were drawn to work at the Italian Swiss Colony Winery down the road. Fortunately, they brought with them olive trees, vine cuttings, and knowledge of grape growing.
The stone house, winery and vineyards were built around 1880 and once housed a winery known as Villa Maria. However, prohibition brought an end to the winery and vineyards until the rebirth of the American wine industry in the late 1970's.
Blue Rock was reborn in 1987 when the rundown property was purchased by Cheryl and Kenny Kahn. The vineyard was replanted to the 5 Bordeaux varietals plus a small hillside of Syrah. The Estate consists of 100 acres and the original house, gardens and stone winery have all been rebuilt with a respect for the unique history.
Our 2017 Baby Blue boasts over 55% Blue Rock Estate fruit plus a whopping 47% Cabernet Sauvignon. The medium body and gentle tannins of the vintage easily invited both the additional structure and impressive depth contributed by this noble grape. As always, the remainder of our assemblage celebrates the five primary varietals of Bordeaux plus a bit of Syrah, all from prime neighboring sites to complete this gorgeous cépage.
Baby Blue is always built for pleasure right out of the gate and this beautifully aromatic rendition is no exception. Loads of rich red and black fruits, plus a delightful hint of blueberry, all get the party started. This is followed up by a nice compliment of baking spices, vanilla, a kiss of gentle herbs, and just the right amount of beautiful French oak and earthy goodness to round things out on the finish. Wonderful length and supple tannins make for easy enjoyment of this joyous red.

Shipping wine around the country is very expensive. We charge about a third less than what it actually costs us. If you need to return your order (or if the wine gets returned back to us because you were unable to receive it after 3 attempts and you didn't email us to make other arrangements), we need to collect a return shipping fee that is up to double the amount of the shipping you paid. Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
