Lacuna 2013 Proprietary Red Blend, Sonoma Coast
Retail 36.00 – GGWC 33.99
The Story: Everyone’s dream is to make great wine. That said,
when two friends created Lacuna and set out to do so, they had one
problem – no winemaker! When they hooked up with ace winemaker Morgan
Twain Peterson (Bedrock) their problem was solved and their 10 year dream came
to fruition. This is the sixth release and it has created a great following
among many of our clients. I’d be surprised not to see another high (95
point) rating, as this is on par with the Bedrock wines that have garnered 95-99 Points).
The Wine: Morgan Twain Peterson
a.k.a. The Bedrock Man does it again! I am proud to introduce another release
of Lacuna. This 700 case production
was sourced from several revered vineyards in Northern California. Morgan Twain
Peterson (the man behind the successful Bedrock wines) crafted this blend
of 85% Syrah, 6% Carignan, 3% Mourvedre, 2% Petite Sirah and 4% Viognier
(co-fermented) into a synergy of amazing aromas and flavors. The wine is
high-toned with savory and bold aromas of white pepper, rosemary, and black
stone fruit that are nestled in the warming embrace of currant and blackberry.
This wine has an amazing, lush body with bold black stone fruit flavors that linger
on the palate. This wine is well-balanced, although young, shows tremendous
potential. I would suggest either decanting, and let it breathe for a good 2
hours, or put in the cellar for a year or two.
