Bottle Notes, Red Blend

2011 Bedrock Wine Co. Heritage Wine Evangelho Vineyard – 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.

Evangelho Vineyard is in Contra Costa County, south of the San Joaquin-Sacramento Delta and east of Mount Diablo. The vineyard is planted with a number of different varieties and dates back to the early 1900’s.

Violet in color. 15.2% ABV. From 100 year old vines a blend of Zinfandel, Carignane, Mourvedre and Mixed Whites. Absolutely fantastic nose of red fruits, citrus and cocoa. Fresh and luscious with acidity in spades. Strawberry, cranberry and peppered beef jerkey on the palate. The finish is tremendous. One of the best Bedrocks in recent memory. Drink over the next 2-3 years.

My rating: 94 points.

The mailing at Bedrock is highly recommended. Exceptional wines, fair prices and great customer service. Put your name on the waiting list.

I blogged about Bedrock recently in The 2015 Zinfandel Chronicles Power Rankings.
