Featured in the Punch article "The Insider's Guide to Not-Crappy Rosé" as an essential wine (5/32/2018):
"This is one of California’s perennial standouts—a tribute from Morgan Twain-Peterson to old heritage vineyards and to Domaine Tempier, the most famous of the Bandol estates. The 2017 is an exceptional specimen, with a koji-like richness and cotton-candy softness from Grenache perfectly balancing the growl of Mourvèdre."
Featured in the Food & Wine article "30 Rosés to Drink This Summer" (5/9/2018)
"Bedrock's co-owner and visionary, Morgan Twain-Peterson MW, son of Joel Peterson (founder of Ravenswood) was on a mission to seek out a Bandol style rosé that showcases old-vine Mataro (a.k.a. Mourvèdre) and Grenache. This release weighs in at 12.3 percent ABV so it keeps light on its feet, but maintains tremendous depth. The proprietary name, "Ode to Lule" is a tribute to Lulu Peyraud of Domaine Tempier—an iconic Bandol producer. Its light copper-salmon colored hue lures you into a bowl of raspberries, peaches and apple blossoms. Bold and refreshing sip after sip."
