Sherman & Hooker's Shebang (Bedrock Wine Co.) Cuvee III Sonoma Valley Red Blend(1L)(Ships as 1.5L)

SKU #1054255

From Robert Parker: "There are some terrific bargains in this portfolio, including the non-vintage Sherman and Hooker’s Shebang (only available in one liter bottles). A blend of 80% Syrah and the rest Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and a few white Rhone varietals such as Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, and Marsanne, it is a delicious, consumer-friendly wine offering an attractive dark ruby color, lots of spicy, peppery, berry fruit, and a silky, supple mouthfeel. It is meant to be consumed during its exuberant youth. This was my first look at the wines of Bedrock, which is the creation of Morgan Peterson, the son of Ravenswood’s legendary Joel Peterson. The emphasis appears to be on some innovative blends as well as several single vineyard cuvees." (Feb. 2010) The wine is made up of old vine Zin and Petite Sirah from Abbastanza Vineyard, and some wonderful Syrah from the mouth of the valley. The wine, a mix of 2006 and 2007, was aged in 35% new French oak from Ermitage, Dargaud-Jaegle, and Baron. This 'jug' wine is a bit of a throw back to simpler times. It is also an exceptionally good wine available to just about anyone. Oh, and those hills at the bottom of the label are part of the land-grant illustration given Gen. Hooker circa. 1849. Them some old hills!

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Sonoma County

- Second in fame only to Napa, this "other" valley offers just about every climate and topography imaginable. From its cool and fog-enshrouded coastal regions on the far west, to the sprawling Alexander Valley on the boarder of Napa and the many little dips and peaks in between, Sonoma has been a vital wine-grape-growing region since the mid 1800s. Important sub-AVAs include Chalk Hill (known for chardonnay and sauvignon blanc), Dry Creek Valley (where zin is king) Knights Valley (largely cabernet land), Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast (both celebrated pinot and chardonnay zones).
