Bottle Notes, Zinfandel

2019 Bedrock Wine Co. Heritage Wine Pato 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.

Pato Vineyard is situated in Oakley and was planted in 1905. The vineyard possesses a higher percentage of Petite Sirah in the blend (Zinfandel, Mataro and Carignan are present as well).

Dark red in color. 14.5% ABV. Perfumed nose of red fruits, baking spices and citrus. Medium body with mouth watering acidity. Bright, juicy fruits in spades. Perfectly balanced. Cherry, raspberry, blood orange and a hint of pepper on the palate. Tremendous length on the finish. The best Pato Vineyard wine from Bedrock that I can remember. I wish I had more. Drink over the next 3-5 years.

My rating: 94 points.

The 2023 Pato Vineyard Heritage Wine will be released this Fall.

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