2010 Cabernet Franc, Santa Barbara County

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011


Cabernet Franc can perform well in a slightly cooler climate, but it enjoys excellent sun exposure and drainage for complete ripening and the best possible flavors. There are microclimates where this varietal thrives in this county. We were able to find those characteristics in a local vineyard close to us. The fruit was sourced from the Los Alamos Hills Vineyard. Though the Los Alamos region does not have an AVA, it should. The reds here are meaty with a distinctive deep berry, earthy quality, and this wine follows suit.

With its expressive fruit and firm acids, the wine was given all the time and care it needed to allow the elements to harmonize and reach its highest potential. To extract the most fruit character, the grapes are cold soaked for 72 hours, allowed a slow, extended fermentation, followed by 45 days of post-fermentation maceration. This built a wine of intensity yet balance, with fruit reminiscent of ripe blackberries, blueberries and spice supported by a toasty vanilla component from approximately 38 months barrel age, 20% new French oak.The wine is 95 % Cabernet Franc with a 5% addition of Petit Verdot. Serve this wine with lamb or pork chops, roasted Cornish game hens, or a filet mignon. Bottle Price: $39.00

2008 Tempranillo Santa Barbara County

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Bedford 2008 Tempranillo_1inThis Spanish red varietal is commanding attention. The fruit is from the Cuyama area of Santa Barbara County, a region gaining in reputation. Dark, opaque purple in the glass, our 2008 is a wine of depth showing a rich blackberry/spice character and a long velvety finish. Though intense, well structured and will age for years to come, the complexity is such that it is deceptively food friendly and enjoyable now. Serve with more flavorful dishes such as roast beef, herb crusted lamb, or cassoulet.  SOLD OUT!

2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, Santa Barbara County

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

Bedford Cab Sauv 07_1in_web From the newly designated appellation of Happy Canyon in the warmer, eastern Santa Ynez Valley, comes our 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon. A warmer climate necessary for this late ripening variety ensured a completely mature grape and the flavors to go with it. 30 months barrel age in french oak provides grace. This is a rich, deeply colored, impeccably well mannered wine with everything in its proper place and just enough intrigue to take it to the next level. The earthy blackberry character backed by notes of vanilla from extended oak aging follows through to its silky, long finish. Its sophistication and flare makes this the Cary Grant of Cabernets. Only 80 cases were made.    Bottle Price: $30.00 –   SOLD OUT
