Oh, darling dreamer, hop on this wild ride and let us take you to the unforgettable Rorick Heritage Vineyard, just a stone's throw away from Murphys in Calaveras County, CA. This organic wonderland boasts vines that have been thriving since the 1970s, perched high in the hills at a breezy 2000'. You may recognize this vineyard from past wines such as Softcore and Come, Saints & Sinners. The grapes grown here are known for their stunning aroma, texture, and natural acidity, which keeps us coming back season after season.
Bloom! Bloom! is a limited-edition red wine that will have your taste buds singing and your heart skipping a beat. Made from 100% Grenache, hand-harvested on a warm September day in 2020, this wine is a true testament to the winemaking finesse of the Tank team. Each precious cluster was foot-stomped and transferred to stainless steel tanks for extended maceration, followed by a blissful 20 months of aging in neutral French oak barrels, before being bottled to perfection.
Bloom! Bloom! is not just any wine, it's a work of art, complete with a whimsical label featuring a charming couple on a moped, surrounded by an array of stunning bouquets. The playful and vibrant label sets the tone for the wine inside.
As soon as you pour the wine, its rich ruby color with a slight purple hue will take your breath away. You'll immediately be greeted by the sweet aroma of cherries and cocoa, followed by a subtle hint of leather, herbs, and cedar. On the palate, Bloom! Bloom! is fresh, textured, and oh-so-elegant. It has velvety tannins that give it a delightful grip and nice acidity that complements the intricate blend of cherries, cocoa, and earl-grey tea flavors. The wine finishes with a satisfying aftertaste that will make you long for another sip.
Bloom! Bloom! is a wine that pairs exceptionally well with food. Its bold and complex flavors make it the perfect companion for bacon-wrapped dates. The wine's tannic structure cuts through the richness of the bacon and complements the sweetness of the dates, creating a harmonious and delicious pairing that will make you feel like royalty.
With only 56 cases produced, this wine is a rare gem that you simply cannot miss.
