2017 Bedrock Zinfandel
We don't produce many non-estate wines, but the “Bedrock Vineyard” Zinfandel warranted a special exception. Our goal as a winery is to celebrate the extraordinary grapes from our unique corner of the Russian River Appellation, but when Morgan Twain-Petersen offered fruit from 128-year-old vines on his renowned Bedrock Vineyard in Sonoma Valley, we couldn’t resist. Directly adjacent to fruit sourced by Carlisle Winery, this section of the vineyard has the highest percentage of field blended “mixed blacks.” Heightened black fruit, spice aromas, rich, balanced, mouth-filling, flavors loaded with fresh raspberries, peppercorn, brambly earth, and spicy cherries. This wine is literally a piece of California history.
