Bottle Notes, Zinfandel

2018 Bedrock Wine Co. Zinfandel Old Vine – 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.

Sourced from a number of vineyards including Bedrock, Teldeschi, Esola, Pagani, Papera, Evangelho and Pato.

Purple in color. 14.4% ABV. Delightful nose of red and black fruits, plums, earth and pepper. Full bodied with mouth watering acidity. Packed with lush, bright fruits. Strawberry, raspberry liqueur, baking spices and pepper on the palate. Tremendous length on the finish. Fantastic Zinfandel from a super vintage. Best over the next few years while you allow the single vineyard wines to sit in the cellar.

My rating: 92 points.

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