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 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. – Description from mriskic

  • So we have some interest in having a West Coast meet-up (or you can call it a throw-down) for Pinot.  Here's my opening proposal:  We'll do it very close to the Oakland Airport, to save those who are traveling in from out of town (like Emark and JonDerry) from having extra travel if they want to fly.  This would give LuchaVino a chance to attend...

  • I ran up to Napa for a few days to get away and taste some wines from places I'd never been (most of them).  I went during BottleRock Napa, but alas, didn't partake in an y of those festivities.  Some great finds, so I have listed/linked any of the wines I rated over 90 points, should anyone have interest, or their own thoughts on the wines. Wit...

  • Zinfandel, it’s no secret that I’ve carried on a long and intimate relationship with you. There is so much you have to offer. Sometimes you're a bit rough and tumble, edgy, even dangerous, while other times you’re coy or playful. But you’re always there for me, with joyous fruit, classic bramble notes and structure, allowing for early consumptio... Read More

  • I make no secret of my love for Zinfandel. It’s California’s greatest red wine, with Petite Sirah making it a competitive race. Yes, that goes against the Cabernet orthodoxy, but I find too much Cabernet tastes alike, and not compellingly like Cabernet, while lots of Zinfandel tastes just like Zinfandel, and offers better value than Cabernet to ...

  • I was going to put this in the Whatcha Drinking Tonight thread. But since there was some Syrah talk going on I thought I'd start a new thread on Cool Climate Syrah.Tonight I'm visiting a wine I haven't had in since May and wanted to see how it is progressing. It comes from high up atop the Yorkville Highlands in the Anderson Valley  which is in ... Read More

  • Blue Rock Baby Blue Red 2010


    A nice boutique Cabernet blend. Very soft and easy to drink. Just like the Blue Rock Cabernet, the nose on this wine is wonderful. Nicely balanced and very light....yet some structure comes through as the wine opens. Good approachable wine! Enjoy! Cheers! Read More

  • It’s the holiday season and everyone is recommending Pinot Noir again. What is it with folks, do they just like to take the path of least resistance? Will there come a day when Pinot is not the end all of holiday wine recommendations? Probably not. Lambrusco and Blaufrankisch have a whole set of issues that will prevent them from ever garnering ... Read More

  • Blue Rock Cabernet Sauvignon 2006


    Good.....but I expected more structure. Fantastic nose....I mean fantastic. Maple syrup and rose on the nose! Soft with an interesting end palate. Reminds me of Ridgeline Cabernet in some ways.....with a little less structure. Cheers! Read More
