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, Morgan is clearly passionate about.
Lorenzo’s Heritage comes from Teldeschi Vineyard in the Dry Creek Valley. The blocks farmed by Bedrock date back to the early 1900’s.
Purple in color. 14.6% ABV. Awesome nose of brambly red and black fruits, earth, flowers and pepper. Medium body with mouth watering acidity. Firmly in the Claret style camp with an appealing rusticity. Black cherry, black raspberry, plums and pepper on the palate. Tremendous length on the finish. Super field blend that is showing well now but this wine has more to give in the years to come. Best over the next 2-4 years.
My rating: 92 points.
P.S. This paired exceptionally well with a homemade pepperoni pizza.
The 2017 Lorenzo’s Heritage was released last Spring so I am assuming the 2018 will be coming on the next mailer.
The mailing list at Bedrock is highly recommended. Exceptional wines, fair prices and great customer service. Put your name on the waiting list.
