Simple blend that had everything you can want in a red. Raspberry, fruity, juicy peaches and throw in a little spice and smokiness. This was part of a wine tasting showdown. More on the tastings at http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/03/showdown-saturday.html

Found this gem for around $20 at the Wine Gallery in the CWE of St. Louis. It came highly recommended and I certainly agree. This wine is Blue Rock's entry level everyday red. I believe they also produce a 100% Cab and a "Best Barrels" blend. This wine was a treat at $20 with good complexity, balance, and finesse. Medium bodied and smooth. The Cab dominated the nose, but after 20mins the fruit came through in a delightful way. Cherry cola, blueberry, and raspberry, with a little peppery spice and hints of light oak contact. A very well produced Bordeaux blend that I will certainly be returning to.


Winemaker's Notes:

Baby Blue is made primarily from the estate’s young vines, and is meant to be softer and more immediately accessible than the deeply structured Blue Rock Cabernet. The wine spends 20 months in French Oak and has been bottled unfined. As a result, Baby Blue is delicious on release and is intended for early consumption or midterm cellaring. Atypical for a wine at this price, Baby Blue is a serious, elegant and refined Bordeaux blend that has beautiful aromatics, deep black fruit flavors, and great length. Baby Blue is very much in the spirit of Blue Rock Cabernet and it is an outstanding value. Kenny Kahn: Owner/ Winegrower September, 2011
