2014 Zinfandel - great vintage - do not miss....

2014 Zinfandel
With all of the hype surrounding California's 2012 and 2013 vintages and the age worthy Cabernet being produced it is sometimes easy to look past the beauty of California Zinfandel and the great wines being produced from California's quintessential Red varietal.

“I've been drinking Zinfandel for 30 years, and reviewing it for Wine Spectator a decade now, and the 2014s just might be the most pleasurable Zins I've ever tasted.”
-Tim Fish, The Wine Spectator

2014 California Zinfandel's in stock, stay tuned for more to come!
2014 Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel...$16.99
Plump and luscious, this is jam-packed with fruit. Lively blackberry, pepper and other spice box aromas lead to ripe and rich flavors of black raspberry, caramel and licorice. There are more complex Zinfandels, but few that are more enjoyable to drink. Drink now through 2022.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator

2014 Bedrock “Bedrock Heritage”...$46.99
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
(not yet rated by the Wine Spectator but we predict a big score is coming)

2014 Bedrock Old Vine Zinfandel...$26.99
The 2014 Zinfandel Old Vines is what Morgan Twain-Peterson calls “the gateway drug to Bedrock.” It is a cross-AVA blend of lots culled from his other wines and blended. The 2014 is largely Zinfandel, but with some obscure mixed black varietals thrown in for added complexity. It is an outstanding, full-throttle wine with a Mediterranean personality, with loads of Proven├žal herbs, briary black raspberry and black cherry fruits, dusty loaminess, a lush, full-bodied mouthfeel and dark ruby/purple-tinged color. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.
