2021 Bedrock Rosé “Ode to Lulu” California
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 94 Points
“Lulu” is always among California’s best and most complex Rosés and the 2021 is another sterling example. In the nose, saline mineral notes underscore fruit-centric aromas of apricot pit, mango, guava, nectarine and rose petal jelly, backed by hints of passion fruit and coriander seed. It is fully dry yet seems richer on the palate, where tropical flavors and suggestions of dry fruit and sweet, savory spice are prevalent. The finish is delicious, very long, texturally creamy and as bright as could be hoped. It should improve for another twelve to 18 months. A blend of 70% Mourvedre, 20% Grenache & 10% Cinsault. 800 Cases produced.
