Wine Enthusiast Review
This blends together a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with smaller additions of Syrah, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Juicy blue fruit adorns a soft, well-integrated core of tannin and oak, rich yet balanced in style and big on value.
Wine Tasting Notes
There are moments when the deep ruby color of a red wine is about the most satisfying experience we can have, then of course we smell and taste the wine and things somehow manage to get even better! The Baby Blue Red begins with polished aromas of blackberry, dark currant, pencil shavings, hints of peppercorn, tilled earth, cedar and vanilla bean that sing of an absolutely brilliant young wine. Not to be outdone, rich flavors of both black and red fruits, savory spices, hints of black tea and espresso, and just the right touch of toasty oak in the background suggest this beauty will enjoy a long and celebrated evolution. Altogether more sophisticated and impressive than its "Baby" name might suggest, we may have outdone ourselves on this one!
The most versatile of our estate wines, you can pair Baby Blue with just about any meal designed for a Bordeaux-inspired red. Grilled beef, lamb or pork are easy suggestions, but duck or chicken will do just as well. Hard cheeses, nuts and dried fruits will also go nicely if you are just snacking and sipping. But honestly, sometimes you just want a burger and this wine plays that game too. So listen to your desire and follow it wherever it takes you!
