The Whole Shebang

discovery

#1

Last night I opened ‘The Whole Shebang Eleventh Cuvee’ California Red Blend NV which I’d bought to try…

But that was last March. I did like it but it’s no longer listed.

Note to self: if you buy wines to try then do not delay in opening them.

Shebang wines seems a label of Bedrock Wines and it was made by Bedrock owner Morgan Twain-Peterson.

It’s a Zinfandel blended with Carignan, Petite Sirah, Mourvedre, Alicante Bouchet, Grenache, Syrah, and Barbera and was thoroughly delicious

I really enjoyed a bottle of that too, so delicious. It was on the bin end list for a while but I didn’t get round to ordering more before it went.

We had it in September, and were really taken with it too! :+1:

His white blend, however, seems to get mixed reviews on the site.

Oh, I missed your tasting note.

I thought the white blend was pretty decent but there is definitely some bottle variation :+1:

Snap! Just tried this tonight at the Vinoteca ‘Exceptionals’ tasting. Quite an interesting exercise in attempting to nose out characteristics of the varieties. Really fun wine and fun winemaking -
