Bottle Notes, Zinfandel

2017 Bedrock Wine Co. Heritage Wine Nervo 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.

Nervo Ranch is situated in Alexander Valley and dates back to 1896. Its oldest blocks are a unique patchwork of red and white varieties once used for the now extinct Nervo Winery’s “California Burgundy.”

Purple in color. 14.5% ABV. Savory nose of blue and black fruits, anise, cocoa and pepper. Concentrated and packed with fruits. Great balance. Blueberry, raspberry liqueur and white pepper on the palate. Exceptional length on the finish. This wine has a rustic, old school charm to it. The structure and tannins suggest this will age well. Best over the next 4-6 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.
