A gorgeous medium ruby in color, the seduction continues with alluring aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, graphite, toasted bread, vanilla and crushed rocks. Hints of black licorice, caramel, roasted coffee bean, bay leaf and green peppercorn all come into play as well. The palate follows through with an interplay of rich black and red fruits, warm dessert spices, sweet pipe tobacco and toasted oak, all lovingly wrapped in gentle tannins and proper acidity for a luxuriously long finish.

The estate winemaking traditions of Blue Rock are perhaps best summed up with the French term, terroir, which acknowledges the environmental factors that make the vineyard site unique including soil, weather, appellation, and to that effect, the human element as well.
Running an estate vineyard offers more control over the winemaking process, which yields handcrafted wines of distinction and soul that also give a sense of place. The name Blue Rock originates from the local soil studded with blue pebbles, rocks, and boulders of serpentine. The serpentine rock defines the unique flavor profile of the vineyard as it naturally yields a smaller quantity of grapes.
