Blue Rock Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, and 11% Malbec. It was aged for 22 months in 50% new French Oak and 50% once used barrels. The wine is very aromatic with notes of mint, blueberry and black fruits. Deep flavors of black cherry are balanced with well-endowed but fine grained tannins. There is excellent balance and a persistent finish. It is very approachable and ready for either early consumption or long term cellaring. 1,084 cases produced. Alcohol 14.2%.

We believe that place is paramount, "...a memorable wine is as much a map as a taste. A place where man and plant and planet meet. A kind of liquid geography..." Blue Rock will always come from the blue rocks, pebbles and boulders that make this hillside property so unique and special. Read less

well balanced, subtle dark fruit up front with a smooth light tannin finish
