Bottle Notes, Zinfandel

2017 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 Sodini, Teldeschi, Nervo, Evangelho and Pato.

Crimson in color. 14.4% ABV. Fantastic nose of red and black fruits, citrus, baking spices and flowers. Medium body with perfect acidity. Bright and fresh on the palate. Flavors of strawberry, boysenberry, earth and pepper. Tremendous length on the finish. Awesome Zinfandel that over delivers for the price point. One of the better Bedrock Old Vine Zins in recent memory. Best over the next 2-3 years.

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.
