Bedrock Wine Co. 2016 Old Vine Zinfandel
In recent years, the buzz around Bedrock has reached a fever pitch that has elevated them to cult status among the likes of Turley, Carslile and Martinelli among Zin enthusiasts. Up until now they've been mailing list only, but a small amount has finally hit shelves in NC. Bedrock is the project of Joel Peterson's (Ravenswood founder) son Morgan Twain-Peterson, and this second generation Zin guru is making some incredible wines. The Bedrock wines manage to perfect meld the higher tones of Provencial herbs, loam and bright acidity with the base notes of plum, currant and red fruit compote mixed with smoke, peppery spice and solid tannins.
