We are pleased to announce that Bedrock’s Spring Release will go live next Tuesday, February 19th. New sign-ups who have not purchased previously will receive the wait list offer on Tuesday, February 26th.
The lineup for the Spring is delicious and diverse. It starts with 2018 Ode to Lulu Rosé, which is our favorite rendition since we started making whole-cluster pressed rosé back in 2008. Whites will include the beautifully perfumed and limpid 2018 Sonoma Valley Sauvignon Blanc along with the rich, ageworthy 2017 Chuy Chardonnay sourced from mountain-grown, dry-farmed vines planted in 1973.
On the scarlet side the release will have 2017 vintage field blends from two great, old, Northern Sonoma Vineyards—Nervo and Lorenzo’s (Teldeschi Ranch)—along with the farther afield own-rooted Zinfandel from Schmiedt Road planted in 1915 in East Lodi and Under the Mountain Heritage Wine from Santa Clara County. It will also include two Cabernets— the 2017 Montecillo Vineyard and our first more value-priced 2017 Sonoma County Cabernet. Rounding out the release will be two Syrahs— our first from the amazing Sky Vineyard on Mt. Veeder along with the 2016 rendition of Weill a Way Vineyard. Oh, and there might be a few hundred bottles offered of a wine that includes Zinfandel from Puccini Vineyard cofermented with varieties such as Castets, Syrah, Grenache, Peloursin, Trousseau, Negrette, Persan, Mollard, and others.
If you have any questions, please let us know. A quick note, Chris and I are currently spreading the Bedrock gospel in Japan so if you do have a question, email is best!
is there a difference in Weil Vineyard Syrah and Weil-A-Way vineyard? I know the exposition wines are different but CT has entries for both Weil and W-A-W. Also, is the Under the Mountain a similar blend to other Heritage reds?
