Tasting Notes:

Pinot Noir comes in many styles, all of which have special places in people’s hearts. We are proud to celebrate our unique California terroir and the wonderful fruit qualities that wine lovers have come to expect from our region. But we get really excited when that glorious red and black fruit is accompanied by a whole spice box of savory goodness, wrapped in a light-to-medium body with delicacy, intensity and flare. If this sounds like your kind of Pinot, our 2019 Baby Blue will deliver, delight and keep you dancing all night.

About the Winemaker:

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.

About the Vineyard:
100% from our Gapstone estate vineyard at the heart of the Petaluma Gap, this Pinot Noir highlights the Swan, Pommard and 115 clones. A huge helping of love, passion and hard-earned experience went into developing this site, and the Blue Rock Vineyard team is absolutely giddy to see its pedigree and potential already showing up in the glass. This delightful Baby Blue Pinot Noir is a fabulous sneak preview of many great things to come.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Famous for its versatility at the table, Pinot can pair with just about anything. We would suggest focusing on herbs, spices, earthy mushrooms and gentle dried fruit accents with this particular bottling. Nothing too heavy or loud here, but fresh farm-to-table ingredients that want to show off their purity alongside this little wine country gem.
About the Winery
Blue Rock Vineyard Dating back to 1880, the 100-acre Blue Rock estate tells the story of how European winemaking came to Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley. Italian immigrants brought with them olive trees, vine cuttings, and knowledge of grape growing. The region’s undulating golden hills and idyllic vistas even look reminiscent of Tuscany itself.
