"The informing impulse behind Shebang! is to create a wine that is long on deliciousness and low on pretense. This is done by vinifying the wines with the same care and love as the higher end Bedrock wines: picking at respectable sugar levels (not too high!), using only native yeast fermentation, and a trace of good French oak to round things out. The cuvee VIII is predominately Zinfandel blended with Petit Sirah, Alicante Bouchet, Grenache, Carignane, Syrah, Mourvedre & Barbera, much of which comes from old vines."
