Bedrock Winery Old Vine Zinfandel, 2016

30.00

Bedrock Wine Co. was founded in 2007 by Morgan Twain-Peterson in a 550 square-foot, former chicken coop with 8 foot ceilings and no fermentation space. After six years of Bedrock being a one-man-show, Morgan was able to talk his best friend, Chris Cottrell, into moving to California from New York to join him. They now happily have more space to move around in but share the same objectives that guided the winery at the start. Their biggest goal is to channel the fruit of ancient vines into powerful, elegant, and distinctly Californian wines. The 2016 Zinfandel comes from many different old-vine vineyards largely based around three farms in Sonoma planted in 1888, 1896 and 1905. In addition, there is a kitchen-sink blend of other old-vine sites as well. Peterson guesses that the average age of the material in the blend is at least 80 years. 90% Zinfandel and the rest Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet, Grenache, Carignan, Mataro and a few other eccentric black varieties. This wine shows terrific fruit, loads of ground pepper, black raspberry and blackberry fruits, licorice, and an Amarone-like character. It is dense, full-bodied, vibrant and energized.
