Appearance deep ruby
Aromas black currants, black cherry, roasted pecan, dark brown sugar, mint leaf, pinecone
Palate cranberry, blackberry, black olive, cigar, medium acidity, well integrated tannins, long lingering finish that trails off with cherry flavors
Food Pairing Suggestions
All of the traditional Cabernet pairings will work wonderfully — red meats, reduction sauces, and mushroom dishes — plus herbed tomato, poultry stock and heavier cream sauces. The combination of fruit and acidity here will shine with any and all of these culinary delights.
Ready to enjoy now with a few hours of decanting, but will age well for another 12 to 15 years under proper cellar conditions
Blue Rock Vineyard
About The Vineyard
All grapes for this wine come from the best blocks at our Blue Rock Estate Vineyard in Alexander Valley.
The 2017 vintage showcases our team’s years of experience and talent: Two early heat waves challenged the faint of heart as harvest approached, but through meticulous farming and steel-nerved patience, we saw our vineyards through to a glorious finish. The resulting wine tells a beautiful tale of the vintage, our team and our stunning and unique property.
