Bedrock Zinfandels

2013 Bedrock Zinfandel Monte Rosso Single Vineyard....$49.99
The 2013 Zinfandel Monte Rosso is fabulous. A dark, opulent wine, the 2013 is endowed with magnificent power and richness. Inky blue and black fruit, smoke, licorice and dark spices meld together in the glass. The firm mountain are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. Grilled herbs, smoke and lavender add nuance on the close. This is a fabulous expression of Monte Rosso, one of the most historic and pedigreed vineyards in northern California.

2014 Bedrock Zinfandel Carlisle Vineyard...$46.99

From Mike Officer’s home vineyard, the 2014 Zinfandel Carlisle Vineyard (planted in 1927) tips the scales at a whopping 14.9% alcohol, but hides it beneath a cascade of beautiful briary, raspberry, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit. It’s full-bodied, deliciously pure, ripe and a total hedonistic turn-on. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.
Rated 92/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

2013 Bedrock Dolinsek Ranch Heritage...$46.99
One of the many highlights in this range, the 2013 Dolinsek Heritage Wine brings together nuance with power. Energetic and delineated throughout, the Dolinsek is utterly hypnotizing in its beauty. Dolinsek lies in one of the cooler regions within the Russian River Valley. The blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet, Grand Noir and a handful of other varieties is simply magical.

2013 Bedrock Evangelho Heritage Wine...$37.99
The 2013 Evangelho Heritage Wine is a real stunner. Silky, suave and nuanced on the palate, the 2013 impresses for its balance and total sense of class. Sweet red berries, flowers, spices and mint are all given an extra dimension of aromatic lift from the significant presence of sand found in this Contra Costa site. The acidity is especially bright in 2013, adding to the wine's energy. Carignane, Zinfandel and Mourvedre form the core of the blend.

2014 Bedrock Evangelho Heritage Wine...$37.99
The 2014 Evangelho Heritage Wine is dark, fleshy and supple. Dark cherry, mint, pomegranate, blood orange, smoke, licorice, lavender and mint are some of the many nuances that open up in the glass. This site is planted with a field blend of Zinfandel, Carignane, Mataro, Palomino, Alicante Bouschet and Mission. More importantly, it is one of the most distinctive and polished wines in the range.
