The base of wine is composed around the ancient plantings of Mourvedre at Bedrock Vineyard and Pagani Ranch, the rest of the blend is composed of dry-farmed Grenache planted in the 1880’s at Gibson Ranch in McDowell Valley and Carignane from the 1950’s planted on soils that remind me of Pauillac in Ukiah.
Pagani-Red Hill series soils
The grapes were harvested at relatively low sugars to maintain freshness.

Made from 75% Mourvèdre and 25% Grenache, the 2017 Ode to Lulu Old Vine Rosé is very pale-salmon pink in color with delicate Bing cherries, raspberry leaves and red currants scents with hints of red apples and white pepper. The palate is medium-bodied with lovely spicy sparks throughout the red berries flavors, with great freshness and a peppery finish.
Vivid pale orange-pink. Expressive scents of fresh red berries, orange pith, pungent flowers and chalky minerals show excellent focus and lift. Fine-grained and nervy in the mouth, offering zesty red currant, strawberry and blood orange flavors and a spicy jolt of white pepper on the back half. The floral note sneaks back in steadily on a silky, persistent, mineral-driven finish.
