Bottle Notes, Zinfandel

2013 Bedrock Wine Co. Old Vine Zinfandel – Bottle Notes

Bedrock Wine Co. was founded by Morgan Twain-Peterson in 2007 and focuses on small production wines from many 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.

From a multitude of vineyards with vines averaging 80 years of age.

Dark violet in color. 14.5% ABV. Black fruits, pepper and flowers on the nose. Bright and rich with strong acidity on the palate. Flavors of blackberry, blueberry, pepper and vanilla. The finish is long and spicy. Not as complex as the single vineyard wines from Bedrock but exceptionally well made. One of the single best values in California Zinfandel at $20 a bottle. You can’t go wrong here and I will be a buyer of the 2014 version.

My rating: 91 points.

The mailing at Bedrock is highly recommended. Exceptional wines, fair prices and great customer service. Don’t delay.

I blogged about Bedrock recently in the Zinfandel Chronicles Power Rankings.
