Bedrock Wine Co. was founded by Morgan Twain-Peterson in 2007 and focuses on small production wines from several of California’ s most treasured and historic vineyards. The lineup of wines at Bedrock is expanding rapidly, but I think the best of the best are the ancient vineyard Zinfandels Morgan is clearly passionate about.
Purple in color. 15% ABV. Ripe, brambly fruit, lavender and vanilla on the nose. Full bodied and packed with fruits. Just a touch of acidity. Licorice, white pepper, blackberry and raspberry on the palate. Finishes strong with with noticeable tannins. Drink over the next 2-3 years while you wait on the Heirloom wines to blossom.
My rating: 91 points.
$22 from the winery. One of the very best values in California Zinfandel.
