Great scores!

Huge Scores for Bedrock and Carlisle
We always buy Bedrock and Carlisle wines as soon as they are released. If they haven't been rated we know they will be and we know the ratings will be high, especially in great vintages like 2014 and 2015. So it comes as no great surprise that 8 of the top 10 rated 2014 and 2015 Zinfandels in The Wine Spectator are either Carlisle or Bedrock. These wines are truly great expressions of the Heritage Vineyards of Sonoma Country.

2014 Carlisle “Bedrock" Vineyard Zinfandel...$44.99
Red Plump and rich flavors wrap around a big but refined structure, with briary wild berry aromas and zesty notes of smoky anise, cracked pepper and stony mineral that linger toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2028. From California.—T.F 
Rated 94/100 The Wine Spectator

2015 Bedrock Pagani Ranch Heritage....$46.99
Potent and rich, this is loaded with personality, offering expressive blackberry and smoky pepper aromas and dark, complex currant and blueberry flavors, accented by licorice and Chinese five-spice powder. The tannins are bold but balanced. Zinfandel and other red varieties. Drink now through 2025. 300 cases made.
Rated 95/100 The Wine Spectator
