Wine Review: This slightly opaque and dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Blue Rock opens with balsamic, black olive and black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a unique tart strawberry rhubarb and oak blend with notes of red plum, bay leaf and sage. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for quite a while. This Cab would pair well with a shredded beef chuck roast sandwich. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: 2016 was a stunning vintage offering us the opportunity to harvest each block at optimal ripeness and flavor to produce a wine of beautiful color, aroma, structure and intensity. A deep red-hued purple in the glass, the nose offers an intriguing interplay between dark red and black fruits and the savory, spicy, sweet tobacco side of Cabernet. The palate is mouthcoating, rich and full, celebrating the bold fruit California is so famous for, all while showcasing the wonderful balance and refinement that are the hallmarks of Blue Rock Estate. Perfect for pairing with filets, short ribs, or shanks.
