Marziano Abbona Barbera d'Alba Rinaldi 20172017 vintage gives us a "Rinaldi" of great strength and character, with an extraordinary potential of aging.

The olfactory profile is then enriched by a good spiciness, given both from grapes than from the refining.

Blue Rock Baby Blue 2017An excellent example of the vintage, our 2017 Baby Blue showcases both power and finesse. Baby Blue offers an abundance of pleasure right from the start, but as you sip and savor, you will be given a glimpse into the stunning seriousness and sophistication captured by the 2017 wines. This may be a "baby," but its refinement and pedigree will impress on every level! Striking Cabernet aromatics leap from the glass, deep black and blue fruits dance on the palate, followed by a soft and silky texture, fine grained tannins and glorious structure to complete ensemble. The blend may change with each Vintage, but the goal is always the same - to produce a wine that is delicious and accessible with velvety tannins, an enticing aroma - a wine that is balanced with a lengthy finish. Baby Blue spends 12 months in French Oak before bottling.
Blue Rock Baby Blue Blanc 2017Bordeaux white grapes of Sauvignon Blanc. However, we did not stop there. We added a small, amount of Viognier and felt that it would give Baby Blue Blanc an aromatic "pop!" The result is a wine that is both fresh and rich, a rare combination that appeals to all the parts of the palate. The finish is lingering, allowing Baby Blue Blanc to be enjoyed on its own year-round. However, its magic is when paired with food, from standard American fare to something much more exotic.
