2008 Bedrock Wine Company "The Bedrock Heirloom" Sonoma Valley Red Wine

SKU #1056190

92 points from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Highly seductive aromas of raspberry and blackberry liqueur, rose petal, incense and spicecake; smells like a new school southern Rhone wine. Supple, silky and extroverted, with a pronounced sweetness to its red and dark fruit flavors. Really spreads out to saturate the palate and finishes with impressive thrust and clarity." (May/Jun '10) 90 points from Robert Parker: "The 2007 Heirloom Proprietary Red is a blend of 50% Zinfandel and the rest equal parts Carignan, Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Barbera from a vineyard planted in 1888. An outstanding effort, it reveals abundant amounts of peppery, berry fruit intertwined with hints of incense, roasted herbs, and forest floor in a round, full-bodied, fleshy personality. This was my first look at the wines of Bedrock, which is the creation of Morgan Peterson, the son of Ravenswood’s legendary Joel Peterson. The emphasis appears to be on some innovative blends as well as several single vineyard cuvees." (Feb. 2010)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
Specific Appellation:

Sonoma County

- Second in fame only to Napa, this "other" valley offers just about every climate and topography imaginable. From its cool and fog-enshrouded coastal regions on the far west, to the sprawling Alexander Valley on the boarder of Napa and the many little dips and peaks in between, Sonoma has been a vital wine-grape-growing region since the mid 1800s. Important sub-AVAs include Chalk Hill (known for chardonnay and sauvignon blanc), Dry Creek Valley (where zin is king) Knights Valley (largely cabernet land), Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast (both celebrated pinot and chardonnay zones).
