Bottle Notes, Zinfandel

2014 Bedrock Wine Co. Heritage Wine Evangelho Vineyard – Bottle Notes

Bedrock Wine Co. was founded by Morgan Twain-Peterson in 2007 and focuses on small production wines from many of California’ s most treasured and historic vineyards. The lineup of wines at Bedrock is expanding rapidly, but I think the best of the best are the ancient vineyard Zinfandels and Field Blends, Morgan is clearly passionate about.

Evangelho Vineyard is in Contra Costa County, south of the San Joaquin-Sacramento Delta and east of Mount Diablo. The vineyard is planted with a number of different varieties and dates back to the early 1900’s.

Bright crimson in color. 14.1% ABV. Gorgeous nose of red fruits, flower and pepper. Medium to full bodied with just the right amount of acidity. Deftly walks the line between Claret style Zinfandel and a more modern rich and plush Zinfandel. Raspberry cream, salmonberry, blood orange and pepper on the palate. Exceptional length on the finish. The flavor profile here is one of a kind and worth the price of admission. Best over the next 2-4 years.

My rating: 92 points.

The mailing list at Bedrock is highly recommended. Exceptional wines, fair prices and great customer service. Put your name on the waiting list.
