Bedrock Wine Co. was founded by Morgan Twain-Peterson in 2007 and focuses on small production wines from some of California’ s most treasured and historic vineyards.
Casa Santinamaria Vineyard in Sonoma Valley was planted in 1905. The vineyard includes Zinfandel, mixed blacks and several blocks of field blended white grapes. The 2011 Casa Santinamaria White wine is a blend of Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Semillon, Muscadelle and Chasselas.
The wine has the floral aromatics of a Southern Rhone blend. Waxy, almost oily, flavors of lemon, peaches, honeysuckle, wet stones, fresh flowers and mineral. Simply delicious.
The wine was a complete steal at $17.50 and is available only via the mailing list. Run, don’t walk, to get on the Bedrock list.
