Rosé wines are light, bright, and refreshing. Often sipped chilled, they have subtle hints of the well-loved red wine grapes used to make them—but with a crisp, fresh twist. You’ll commonly find red fruit aromas A Bottle of Ode to Lulu 2023and flavors of strawberry, cherry, and raspberry, along with floral, citrus, and watermelon notes. There are also herbal and vegetal qualities such as celery, rhubarb, and pepper. Check out our selection for Rosé All May Week Three.

Ode to Lulu 2023 California Rosé
Bedrock Wine Company, Sonoma | $22.99

Bedrock’s Ode to Lulu Rosé is a California tribute to the Mourvèdre-based rosés of Bandol in the south of France. This wine showcases the grape’s intensity and savory qualities, with concentrated red fruit notes accented with hints of herbs and pepper. This wine also has a wonderful structure, making it the perfect rosé to hold up to food pairings while also being a joy to drink on its own.

Ode to Lulu Rosé is composed of 76% Mourvèdre, 16% Syrah, and 8% Grenache, sourced predominantly from centenarian vineyards in Contra Costa and Sonoma County. Picked at lower potential alcohol and whole-cluster pressed, the goal is to highlight the beautiful aromatics and freshness while feeling the natural weight of old vine Mourvèdre.

Tasting Notes
Pale baby-pink in color with aromas of strawberries, blueberries, and a hint of citrus peel. Juicy and silky flavors of berries, citrus peel, and white flowers have a fantastic brightness and faint salinity. There’s a charming cherry note that emerges and lingers in the finish.

About Bedrock Wine Company
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 gave way to full-blown production. He eventually talked his friend, Chris Cottrell, into moving to California from New York to join the winery.

The winery is first and foremost a mission-driven operation. It’s dedicated to preserving and rehabilitating old vineyards around California. The winery is dedicated to taking advantage of the diverse terroirs of California and their capacity to make an enormous range of styles.
