2005 Blue Rock – Alexander Valley, Sonoma

22nd December 2011

Something For Those Special Nights

Most of the wines I recommend here on The Sip-Worthy Cellar are reasonably priced.  I make an effort to find great wines at great prices because I believe you don’t have to spend a lot of money to drink good wine.  However, on occasion I come across wines that are a little pricey, but nonetheless worth every penny - Blue Rock is one of those wines.  Priced at approximately $40, it is a great wine for a special occasion, dinner with the boss or a really “good” friend.  Blue Rock is a nice Cabernet Sauvignon.  It is full-bodied with loads of  black fruits (cherries) and mint.  The tannins are soft, but still provide a solid backbone to the wine.  I served this with a standing rib roast and it paired perfectly. No matter the occasion, you won’t be disappointed.  -Brandon
