Bedrock Wine Co. Evangelho Vineyard Heritage 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Complex on the nose and full of spicy nuances that highlight the leather, slightly jammy mulberry and black fruit on the nose that also shows a touch of peachiness. There’s a whisper of oak here, showing up as a smoky note and a light dollop of vanilla. Perhaps a little sweet on entry, this is slightly chewy and very rich, but the fruit is quite fresh with a nice brambly cast to the core of red cherry, currant and pomegranate fruit. Super fresh on the finish, once one gets past the impression of sweetness here there’s superb balance and freshness that makes this a pleasure to drink. The finish is a touch short, but that’s the only knock on this wine. This is drinking well today; enjoy it over the next three years for its exuberant fruit. 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.
