Bedrock Wine Co. Evangelho Vineyard Heritage Zinfandel Blend 2013

$34.99

Hot new boutique producer from  Sonoma label. A rising start to watch! The Heritage Red from the Evanghelho Vineyard in Contra Costa County truly embodies Bedrock is all about. This wine is a "field blend" made from 22 different varietals from vines that were planted 123 years ago.  Morgan has gone through and identified every vine on the property by hand.  The main component is Zinfandel, with the remaining 40% of the wine a blend of what has been planted in the vineyard for the past century. Peppery fruit is in the lead with this wine, followed by plums and cloves. It is a very dark and textured wine, chewy and dense. This wine has so much history in each glass. If you are a fan of the tradition and history of wine, this is something to be tried and shared with friends.

This one is labeled “Heritage”, not Zinfandel Blend. Deep burgundy red, highly extracted pigment. Initially, herbal-briar notes in nose with hints of red fruit and funk. Soft, black currant, cherry and raspberry flavors with length, mild seed and skin tannins in finish. Over time, licorice emerges in finish with moderate to heavy skin and seed tannins. Decant at least three hours. Plum flavor emerges if you are patient enough

Took a bit to open up. Darker fruit with a bright touch of acid.

Opened guy and decided to give it some time. Came back a couple days later to find much more expression and cohesiveness. Perfumed with aromas of berry confiture, warm spices, cocoa, leather, dried flowers, licorice root. Palate is rich and bold up front with gobs of red and black fruits, moving into spice and roasted herbs and minerals. For how much concentration this wine has there is a certain freshness to it that reminds me of great CNDP terroir

It just keeps getting more interesting! Now, when the baby fat, is gone, its true vineyard quality shines thru. Long life ahead. 92+

Took this wine about an hour to wake up and shine. Blackberries, slate, and gravelly tannins.
