Bedrock California "Ode to Lulu" Old Vine Rosé 2017

Bedrock California "Ode to Lulu" Old Vine Rosé 2017

  • 2199


Proclaimed winemaker of the year by Jon Bonné (2015), Morgan Twain-Peterson (son of Ravenswood founder Joel Peterson) and partner Chris Cottrell found a way to express history of California in a bottle. Their passion is finding the oldest Zinfandel vines in California that are freestanding, head-pruned with gnarled trunks. The fulcrum of the wine is based around three old vineyards in Sonoma County: Bedrock (1888), Nervo (1896), and Sodini Ranch (1905), along with a healthy dollop from the gorgeous Esola Vineyard in Amador County. The wine also has tasty morsels from Pagani Ranch, Evangelho, Pato, Papera Ranch, Teldeschi, Dolinsek Ranch, Carlisle, York Creek, and others. With the average vine age over 80 years, this is some legit old vine goodness. 

Uninoculated fermentation, native malo-lactic and whole cluster fermentation to produce a pure expression of Zinfandel. To read more about each vineyard's history and see a map of the location, click here. Peterson is also one of the first California winemakers to become a Master of Wine.

Blend: Mourvedre (Monastrell), Grenache and Carignan
