Bedrock Wines

2012 Bedrock Syrah Hudson Vineyard...$49.99
From a well-known Carneros vineyard, the 2012 Syrah Hudson used 60% stems and was aged in 40% new French oak. The blocks of vines used for this cuvee were planted by John Kongsgaard, who also fashions sensational wines from this source. I liked the fact that Morgan Peterson did not have a clue as to what the total alcohol was. This floral, meaty Syrah is reminiscent of a French Cote Rotie. Full-bodied and ripe with plenty of juicy blackberry fruit, this winner should drink nicely for a decade.
Rated 91-93/100 The Wine Advocate

2013 Bedrock Evangelho Vineyard Heritage...$34.99
Zinfandel, Carignane and Mourvedre
Bedrock Wine Co. was founded in 2007 by Morgan Twain-Peterson in a 550 square-foot, former chicken coop with 8 foot ceilings and no fermentation space. After six years of Bedrock being a one-man-show, Morgan was able to talk his best friend, Chris Cottrell, into moving to California from New York to join him. They now happily have a little more space to move around in but share the same objectives that guided the winery at the start.
