Bedrock Heritage Contra Costa County Evangelho Vineyard 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

40% Carignane, 38% Mourvedre, with the remainder Zinfandel, Palomino, Alicante, and Mission. Crackling red fruit of Carignane, unctuousness of Zinfandel, and terrestrial perfume of Mourvedre is held aloft by an underlying brightness. Yet another unique terroir only found in this great State. 900 cases produced. Not yet reviewed; 2015 vintage rated 94 points by Antonio Galloni (Vinous).

Bedrock Wine Co.:
Bedrock is an itsy-bitsy winery making wine in a converted chicken coop. Fruit from only the most excellent vineyard sites is hand pitch-forked into the destemmer, fermented in open top redwood and stainless vats using only native yeasts, and are manually basket pressed by winemaker Morgan Twain-Peterson into the sexiest oak from the coldest French forests.

The purple color is more red than blue. Pleasant enough fruity nose with, maybe, a hint of anise. Fruitier than I normally like on entry—blueberry, prune—a little too much “sweetness” for me. This is followed by some drying tannin. This wine needs acid to balance the fruitiness. Aftertaste is pleasant and lengthy—which, to me, shows the folly of aftertaste.
