Red Blend Cuvee, The Whole Shebang! [Bedrock]
The Whole Shebang is a wine made by the small crew at Bedrock Wine Co. intended to offer authentic Californian deliciousness at a reasonable tariff. Composed of Zinfandel, Carignan, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Mataro, and other Mediterranean varieties, the wine is their version of the humble, yet soul-satisfying, Côtes du Rhône.
Unlike most California wines at its price point, Shebang is entirely made in Bedrock’s cellars with the majority of lots fermented with indigenous yeasts, native malolactic strains, and raised in a combination of neutral oak barrels and tank (in other words, minimal winemaking chicanery). The fruit comes from old vineyards they are rehabilitating along with younger vine parcels and barrels of Bedrock Wine Co. wines that do not fit into the higher-end wines. By being multi-vintage, it creates some consistency across cuvées and ensures they can deliver a wine that overdelivers for its price.
