2016 Bedrock Vineyard Red WineSonoma Valley
Made from vines planted in 1888 in the heart of Sonoma Valley, this is a true California heritage blend. It was common practice in the early days of California viticulture to plant “field blends” — interplanting many diverse varietals including Carignan, Black Muscat, Alicante Bouche, and Mourvédre with a good deal of Zinfandel. This beautifully complex mix creates a unique wine that has the aromatic hallmarks of a well-balanced Rhone but with the power and structure of a true California Zin. The Bedrock Vineyard Red Wine shows the rich brambly purple fruits with delicate undertones of violet, black pepper and dried lavender, complimented by long subtle tannins that carry the wine through to an amazingly long finish. This is always a strong favorite among our “Rhone” lineup despite hailing from the capitol of New World Zin. We have no doubt that when this wine hits your glass you will wholeheartedly agree, this is just the ticket for the closeted Rhone lover.
