Bottle Notes, Zinfandel

2017 Bedrock Wine Co. Zinfandel Schmiedt Road – 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.

Schmiedt Road Zinfandel is a blend of 60% Katushas’ Vineyard and 40% Kirschenmann Vineyard.

Crimson in color. 14.5% ABV. Pretty nose of red fruits, baking spices and licorice. Medium body with nice acidity. Lighter in style with fresh, bright fruits. Raspberry, black cherry, earth and pepper on the palate. Exceptional length on the finish. Charming Zinfandel. I’m starting to think Bedrock did well in the challenging ’17 vintage. Delicious and easy to drink. Best over the next 2-4 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.
