Ode to Lulu is Bedrock’s love letter to the Bandol rosé. 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, 2018 is the palest rendition of this wine...something that belies its richness and density.

    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.
