Bottle Notes, Zinfandel

2010 Bedrock Wine Co. Heirloom Wine Pagani Ranch – 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.

Pagani Ranch is just off Highway 12 in the Glen Ellen area of Sonoma County. Angela and Felice Pagani came to Sonoma County from Italy, purchased the property and planted the vineyard in the early 1900’s. The fruit goes to Ridge, Bedrock, Carlisle and St. Francis.

Maroon in color. 15% ABV. Fantastic nose of raspberry liqueur, twizzlers and black pepper. Full bodied with mouth watering acidity. Rich, layered and complex. Boysenberry, raspberry, pepper and earth on the palate. The finish is absolutely exquisite. One of the best Zins I have had this year. Drink over the next 3-5 years.

My rating: 95 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 2016 Zinfandel Chronicles Power Rankings.
