2012 Bedrock Wine Co. "The Bedrock Heritage" Sonoma Valley Red Blend

SKU #1220327 95 points Wine Spectator

 *Ranked #15, Topp 100 Wines of 2014, Highly Recommended* An exceptional red that recalls the hearty old California field blends with style. Exotic aromas of cracked pepper, smoky beef and blackberry lead to plum, Asian spice and licorice flavors, lingering toward briary tannins. A blend of Zinfandel, Carignane and 20 other field-blended varieties.  (6/2015)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2012 Bedrock Vineyard Heritage comes from a vineyard planted in 1888 by the father of William Randolph Hearst. It has 22 interplanted varieties, and Morgan Peterson thinks that the final blend is something in the neighborhood of 55% Zinfandel, 20% Carignan and different proportions of about 20 other varietals. There are 600 cases, it was aged in 30% new French oak, and the alcohol is 14.8%. This outstanding wine displays lots of elegance, a distinctive earthy, loamy soil character intermixed with black currants, black cherries and underbrush, an attractive perfume, medium to full body, and is exceptionally well-made and pure.

Additional Information:


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).
