Blue Rock Vineyard Baby Blue Meritage Blend Alexander Valley California 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The excellent 2008 vintage gave us a lot of great wine to work with. The 2008 Baby Blue is 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 18% Syrah, and 3% each of Merlot and Malbec. It is very aromatic, soft, fruity, simply delicious and a great value.

We will produce only small quantities of luxurious red wines that express their sense of place. Blue Rock, therefore, will always make wine from grapes grown exclusively on the Estate. We believe that small is beautiful. In our experience, the finest, most individually expressive wines come from small places. 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

Our proprietary red blend is made in an approachable style that is simply delicious on release. It is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Merlot and Malbec. It is 100% Estate fruit and it is a fantastic value.

Its seductive aromatics are followed by a silky textured, medium to full-bodied wine with loads of personality and soul. This is an interesting blend that seems to work very well and needs to be explored by more wineries. Rated 90+ Winemaker's Notes - Baby Blue, made primarily from the estate s young vines, is meant to be softer and more immediately accessible than the deeply structured Blue Rock Cabernet. The excellent 2008 vintage gave us a lot of great wine to work with. The 100% Estate 2008 Baby Blue is 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 18% Syrah, and the balance Merlot and Malbec.
