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 mouth coating 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.
All of the traditional Cabernet pairings will work wonderfully — red meats, reduction sauces, and mushroom dishes — plus herbed tomato, poultry stock and heavier cream sauces. The combination of fruit and acidity here will shine with any and all of these culinary delights.
