Bottle Notes, Zinfandel

2017 Bedrock Wine Co. Zinfandel Esola 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.

Owned by Denise Esola, this vineyard lies in the heart of Amador’s Shenandoah Valley

Crimson in color. 14.4% ABV. Charming nose of red fruits, anise, earth and pepper. Medium body with perfect acidity. Crisp, fresh and exceptionally well balanced. Cherry, raspberry liqueur, baking spice and pepper on the palate. Tremendous length on the finish. Super wine that clearly over delivers in a challenging vintage. Best over the next 2-3 years.

My rating: 94 points.

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