Wine tasting notes

The Whole Shebang is a truly exciting wine. It’s a multi-vintage blend, which is aged in a solera system. It’s made from, predominantly, old-vine Zinfandel, but there is literally “the whole shebang” in here with white grapes, and other varietals, included to ensure the quality and balance of the wine is maintained.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (NV) - 90 pts

Cuvee XI "Best Buy": "A Mediterranean blend of Zinfandel, Carignan, Alicante Bouchet, Syrah and assorted mixed blacks fermented with native yeasts and aged in primarily neutral containers (15% in new French oak), it is a California version of a high-class Cotes du Rhone. Lots of berry fruit intermixed with lavender, pepper and meaty black cherry and black currant flavors emerge from this satisfying, round, expansive, generous red. An outstanding, killer value that should provide pleasure over the next 1-2 years. If there is a better value in California wine, I would like to know about it.

May 2013 Cuvee VI - Inky purple. Assertive aromas of candied dark fruits and violet, with a peppery topnote. Juicy and open-knit, offering plump blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that show a slight jamminess. An emphatically fruity blend with good finishing lift and gentle tannins. Morgan Twain-Peterson told me that some old-vine zinfandel from the Bedrock Vineyard wound up in here, adding that he made 7,500 cases of it this year.

Tasted May 2018 - Ciuvee XI - This multi-vintage, multi-variety blend is made with an in-house solera system to produce consistency (and as such the cuvée will change every nine to 12 months). It is made with declassified fruit from the Bedrock vineyard. The blend is predominately Zinfandel, Carignan, Petite Sirah, Mourvèdre, Alicante Bouschet, Grenache, Syrah and Barbera, aged in French oak. Annual production is 8,000 cases. Really interesting nose! Well melded and fascinating. So much more interesting than the average Cabernet Sauvignon. Fresh and ripe and beautiful. Long. VGV
