Bedrock the Bedrock Heritage 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sweet toasty oak greets the nose followed by brambly fruit, along with notes of grilled meats, hickory nuts, cracked pepper, and sweet tangerine and nectarine fruits wrapped in vanilla. Smooth and polished with very fine acidity supporting assertive Zinfandel fruit. All wild raspberry and blackberry wrapped in wonderfully fresh and nuanced herbal notes. The finish is a bit tight and austere, with distinctly red berry, red currant fruit. This is young but shows good complexity and excellent balance. Already delicious, this should be better by the end of 2013 and drink well into 2017. 91 points

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.
