Bedrock Wine Co. Pagani Ranch Heritage Sonoma Valley Red Blend 2015

$49.99

94 points                              Hot new boutique producer from  Sonoma label. Limited. 94 Points Robert Parker:  "The 2015 Pagani Heritage Wine was one of the few barrel samples I tasted. It comes from a parcel in Sonoma planted in the 1880s in another mixed blacks’ field of clay. This wine exhibits a dense purple color, deep licorice, creosote, pen ink, and blueberry and blackberry fruit in a full-bodied, spicy style with some earthy, sexy notes in the background. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.... ...Everybody should recognize the incredible speed at which Morgan Twain-Peterson has built his Bedrock Wine Co. into a world-class performer. Moreover, few people have done more to preserve and save heritage/ancient-vine vineyards than Peterson. Here is his new lineup of wines that shows his creative Midas touch for coaxing full character out of his diverse terroirs and blends. His commitment to excellence is something to admire."

Do yourself a favor and follow Esther Mobley on Twitter. She’s the Wine, Beer & Spirits writer for the San Francisco Chronicle and her reporting on the wine country fires is extraordinary... “1880s vines at Old Hill Ranch in Sonoma Valley. Gone” (photo credit to her also). I had to open the 2015 Bedrock Pagani Ranch Heritage from Morgan Twain-Peterson MW (pictured right) which is also from 1880s vines and just a few miles north of the Old Hill Ranch along Sonoma Highway. It had me immediately saying prayers that the Pagani Ranch would be spared — it’s stunningly pure and absolutely glorious... think choirs of angels. As if a top Châteauneuf-du-Pape producer, like Janasse or Clos Saint Jean, traded their 100+ year old Grenache for 100+ year old Zinfandel. Giant, but radiant red fruit that has a kirsch and violet edge to it. Add in some dense blackberry to a base of rich minerality and this soars into a cloud of herbs and spices including Herbes de Provence, adding baking spice, licorice, and wildflowers along the way, with some secondary cured meat and cracked pepper which gives this the depth and complexity it deserves. Beautiful.

Oh my. This had a tone of gorgeous dark berry, blueberry and spice. It finishes with firm, but not harsh tannins. Really really good. Highly recommended.
