The Whole Shebang Cuvee XIII NV, Bedrock, Sonoma County
It displays classic aromas of strawberry compôte, fresh fig, dried cranberries and spicy notes. The palate has a juicy core, refreshing acidity, well integrated tannins with a luxurious texture and generous finish. A great value Californian red wine!
Bedrock Wine Co. was started in 2007 by Morgan Twain-Peterson. Working out of a small converted chicken coop in a friend’s backyard, Morgan focused on making personality-filled wines wrought from a small array of thoughtfully farmed vineyards. Over time the chicken coop and its outdoor fermenters and tiny basket press gave way to production at another friend’s winery and eventually to the “elegant” tin-sided warehouse that is now called home. In addition, after six years of working alone the winery welcomed Chris Cottrell as a partner-in-crime along with a small, dedicated staff of highly decent human beings.
The grapes are hand picked, native yeast fermented, aged in French Oak barrels (some new).
