Food Pairing Suggestions
You can pair this Baby Blue with just about any meal designed for a hardy red. Grilled beef, lamb or pork are no-brainers, but duck or chicken will do just as well. Hard cheeses, nuts and dried fruits will also go nicely if you are just snacking and sipping. Be adventurous with this one because it’s very hard to go wrong.
Will age well for another 5-8 years in the cellar
Blue Rock Vineyard
About The Vineyard
The 2018 Baby Blue Bordeaux blend marks a transition to primarily estate fruit for this cuvée. The vintage was simply stunning, especially at Blue Rock. While friendly and accessible young, this Baby Blue is no baby at all, but a very grown up red wine indeed. Celebrating the five primary varietals of Bordeaux, plus a bit of Syrah, this beautiful bottle offers an excellent introduction to our estate story with impressive poise and style.
