Blue Rock Vineyard "Baby Blue" Red Blend Sonoma County 2016
Just minutes from Silver Oak, Blue Rock Vineyard is a family owned property located in the region of Alexander Valley. The hillside vineyard, consisting of 46 acres, was replanted in 1982 to the 5 Bordeaux varietals. In 1993, an additional 3 acres of Beaucastle-clone Syrah were planted in the hills. The goal is to produce affordable, luxury and small batch of wines from their sustainably farmed vineyards.
The name Blue Rock comes from their soils, which are studded with blue pebbles, rocks, and boulders of serpentine. The serpentine rock defines the unique flavor profile of the vineyard, as serpentine naturally reduces the yields to very low levels. Today, the very best vineyards are planted on devigorating rootstocks in order to improve the flavor and density, something that comes naturally to Blue Rock. Blue Rock is blessed with cool mornings and warm days that make it one of those special places where Bordeaux varietals develop clarity and finesse.
