External Reviews for Bedrock Wine Co. Zinfandel Old Vines
Bedrock is a tiny winery located in the Sonoma Valley, making wine in a converted chicken coop. Fruit from only the most unique and highest wuality 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, son of Joel Peterson the founder of Ravenswood.The nose is dominated by fragrant red fruits and spice. The palate echoes the nose with deep and rich berry notes that leap out of the glass and are perfectly balanced by a classic Zin spice. Well balanced with a long elegant finish.
"If there is any wine of the 2011 releases that accurately demonstrates the poised, claret-like, character of the 2011 vintage it is the 2011 Sonoma Valley Old-Vine. The late ripening Stellwagen Vineyard once again was included into this cuvee to lend its dark fruit, and Casa Santinamaria, another vineyard originally slated for vineyard designation, was included for its beautiful spice. The remainder of the wine is composed of Zinfandel from the terraced Los Chamizal Vineyard, some younger vine fruit from Rossi Ranch in Kenwood, a few barrels of Monte Rosso Zinfandel, and a dollop of old-vine Carignane and Mourvedre from my Bedrock Vineyard. This is old-school Zin- bright, focused, and energetic. Like previous releases of this wine, I would expect it will reward a year or so of short-term aging." -Winery
