New Bedrock Wines

"These are some of the more exciting wines from heritage sites in California, and Peterson has the right philosophy and a go-get-it attitude that is endearing and positive. All of these wines merit serious interest from readers looking for hedonistic, flavor-filled, full-throttle wines that are bursting with personality.-Robert Parker The Wine Advocate

2014 Bedrock Bedrock Heritage...$46.99bedrock
The 2014 Proprietary Red Bedrock Heritage Proprietary Red is not yet in bottle and was scheduled to be bottled a month or so after I tasted with Twain-Peterson. The wine looks killer. Twenty-four inter-planted varieties (all put in the ground between 1888 and 1895), dominated by 55% Zinfandel and 30% Carignane, have produced this Mediterranean, full-throttle, pedal-to-the-metal, dark ruby/purple wine. Loads of grilled meat, steak tartare, Proven├žal herbs, lavender, blackberry, cassis and sweet cherries are all present in this lovely, full-bodied, voluptuously textured, big fruit bomb from Twain-Peterson. It’s a beauty, and best drunk over the next 5-8 years
Rated 93-95/100 Robert Parker The Wine Advocate

2014 Bedrock Pagani Ranch...$46.99
Just when I think I have tasted the best Bedrock has to offer with the Monte Rosso, the Pagani arrives. A huge, powerful wine, the Pagani is marked by its huge center of fruit, fabulous inner sweetness and exceptional balance. The huge, dramatic finish along is compelling. Today, the Pagani is intense and still a bit raw, but it is stunningly beautiful just the same.
