Our 2017 Estate Cabernet is comprised of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc, all 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. A pristine, deep ruby hue is followed by a spicy and absolutely captivating nose. Powerful, young and still primary aromas of black currant, peppercorn and damp earth with just a hint of bay leaf and vanilla confirm you have a noble Cabernet in the glass. The palate is both mouthcoating and lithe, with ripe tannins that offer balanced structure and support to the loads of black cherry, blueberry and baking spices. Blue Rock’s signature bright acidity carries the finish all the way through and promises another exciting evolution, whether decanted tonight or in your cellar for years to come.
