My first time trying a wine from Bedrock, a Sonoma producer who have a reputation for creating exceptional wines from old-vine Zinfandel. This entry level bottling is very good - and very young. Brambly, with blackberry, black cherry, smokey barbecued meat, tobacco, black pepper & chocolate. Very full bodied, spicy, certainly not jammy but quite serious in its fruit profile - I actually found this quite Cabernet-like - with angular tannins and dried cherry acidity. Nice to have a Zinfandel for the first time in what must be over a year!

In line with the previous vintages’ high marks. Beautiful zin. Layered and elegant, and subtle.

Primarily a Sonoma Zin. A touch of Petite Syrah and Carignan are added. Big black cherry and boysenberry fruit with hints of licorice and black tea. Lots of exotic spice flavors on the finish. Medium bodied. Fresh and juicy, but balanced and especially smooth. Great compliment to barbecue.

Strawberry jam flavors aside, I agree that this isn’t a jammy Zinfandel like others have noted. Plum skins, juicy raspberry sauce and a leading edge of semisweet chocolate add up to a wine that’s easy to drink but still tastes like quality. The price is great and it paired wonderfully with a sweet, garlicky BBQ chicken.
