2018 Bedrock Zinfandel, Old Vines, California (750ml)
Sourced from multiple very old-vine vineyards spread across northern California, this exemplary Zin is a traditional field blend. Lush, aromatic and boasting concentrated layers of flavors, you would be hard pressed to find a better Zin at this price point!
We hand the podium to Morgan: 2018 was a brilliant year for Zinfandel across California, and this wine reflects it. The 2018 is a blend of 85% Zinfandel filled out with Mataro, Grenache, Alicante Bouschet, Carignan, Petite Sirah and scant amounts of the many other varieties that can be found in California’s older, multifarious vineyards. Many of our most venerable vineyards contribute to this wine, including Bedrock, Teldeschi, Esola, Pagani, Papera, Evangelho and Pato filled in with lots from other old vineyards throughout the state. This will provide great drinking pleasure with a decant early on, but as with most iterations of this bottling, will develop nicely for a number of years.
