Bedrock Wine Co. Ode To Lulu Rosé 2016
Save $10.00 (35%)
The 2016 Lulu follows closely on the footsteps of the 2015: The vineyard and blend composition is similar and it is, as always, from old and low yielding vineyards. The Mataro element comes from two lovely but quite different vineyards. Live Oak Vineyard, planted sometime around the inauguration of William Mckinley, is an Oakley vineyard own-rooted in sand. Pagani Ranch, which needs little introduction, was planted close to the onset of Prohibition in Kenwood. To complement these two we blended in Grenache from the 1880s planting at Gibson Ranch in McDowell Valley (Mendocino). All lots were picked at low potential alcohol and whole-cluster pressed. This year's iteration is more aromatically explosive than I remember last year's being-the oftentimes stentorian Mataro showing off a bit more playfulness and the Grenache providing oodles of crunchy bright fruit.
