Bottle Notes, Zinfandel

2019 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.

Ruby red in color. 14.5% ABV. Super nose of red fruits, citrus and baking spices. Medium body with mouth watering acidity. Light, fresh and crisp. Cherry, cranberry, blood orange and pepper on the palate. Tremendous length on the finish. Really appealing Zinfandel that is ready to go right now. It would be great to see more Amador Zins from Bedrock. Best over the next several years.

My rating: 93 points.

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