Wilde Farm Bedrock Vineyard Heritage 2012
Black Plums, black cherries, rose petals, black pepper and tar on the intensely Zinfandel dominated aromas of this clear-bright red blend. The palate is highlighted w/ star anise, tree bark, black cherries, plum compote and finishes w/ fine grained tannins that give the wine structure and depth. Wonderful with a backyard BBQ or a warming, wintery strew.
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.
