Blue Rock Vineyard:
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 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

fair amount of oak in the mouth, a bit too much for me

Deep, juicy raspberries and a very balanced body with soft tannins and a medium finish.

Cherry on the nose and ripe fruit on the tongue along with strong hints of oak.

Vanilla, chockolate, red fruits, some earth on the nose. Good finish but tannins dried my mouth quite strongly, maybe this wine should age a little. Needs decanting for sure.

Intensives Kirschrot mit dunkelvioletten Tönen. In der Nase sehr aromatische Intensität. Noten nach reifen, roten Früchten, die in reiche Vanille- und Röstaromen übergehen. Am Gaumen samtig, gute Struktur. Retronasale Aromen nach reifen, roten Früchten und Vanille. Langer Abgang.

Black cherry fruit is ripe yet crisp in this focused red, framed by smoky oak and balanced by tobacco and mineral notes. Medium-bodied, with good drive and intensity.

WS 90pts - According to the Wine Spectator - Black cherry fruit is ripe yet crisp in this focused red, framed by smoky oak and balanced by tobacco and mineral notes. Medium-bodied, with good drive and intensity. Drink now through 2014.

One of Spain's most modern wineries, Valdemar is noted for their silky-smooth Riojas that balance ripe Tempranillo fruit with nicely toasty oak. Their Crianza is the pinnacle of their house style.

Exquist und edel sind die Worte, die diesen Wein am Besten beschreiben. Nicht laut, sondern nach klassischer Rioja-Art verwöhnt er mit feinsten Kaffee- und Röstaromen, Dörrpflaumen und Lakritztnuancen. Genießen Sie die Reife und Eleganz dieser Reserva.

This 2001 showcases all the characteristics of a great vintage. It exhibits lavish quantities of smoky oak as well as prune, plum, and black cherry fruit. Medium-bodied with ripe, soft tannins, this wine finishes long and lush.

Rich, yet firm and well-integrated, this red from Spain offers concentrated plummy, woody and spicy flavors that fill the mouth and linger on the finish; a lot of wine for so moderate a price. A great match with roasted meats. Drink now through 2003.
