Available for:
Composed of 55% old vine Mataro and 45% old vine Grenache, Ode to Lulu is our love letter to the Bandol rosé we love so much. The Mataro is sourced from the sandy soils and own-rooted vines of Oakley along with a dash of 1920s-planted fruit from the famed Pagani Ranch. The deliciously feral and wild Mataro element is enlivened by Grenache planted in the 1880s at Gibson Ranch in Mendocino's McDowell Valley. From a color perspective, this is the palest rendition of this wine we have made in a while, something that belies its richness and density. The 2018 rendition might be my favorite of the 11 vintages we have made.

Pale to medium salmon-pink in color, the 2018 Ode to Lulu Old Vine Rosé, from vines planted in 1922, is scented of yellow peach, raspberries, cantaloupe and fresh chopped herbs with notions of crushed rock and saline. The light to medium-bodied palate gives up oodles of ripe fruit layers tempered by a mineral streak and mouthwatering acidity, finishing long and flavorful.

Limpid orange. Vibrant, mineral-tinged strawberry, cherry and floral scents, along with suggestions of orange pith and fresh herbs. Hefty red berry and bitter orange pith flavors show impressive clarity and a surprisingly light touch thanks to a core of juicy acidity. Finishes chewy and long, showing nervy tension and insistent red berry and floral notes.
