Bedrock Wine Company Heritage 2020 | 100-Point Winemaker Iconic Red Blend
Bedrock Wine Company Heritage 2020 presents a beautiful deep purple in color. Aromas of black raspberry, boysenberry, lingonberry, plum, and black cherry are complemented by hints of licorice, cedar, white pepper, lavender, and mixed herbs.
Broad and muscular but infused with energy and complexity, it’s got ripe red and black fruit that settles into complex notes of earth and cracked pepper, plus lingering notions of spice and stony minerality that fade on grainy tannins. While not too heavy, this is a beautifully constructed and precisely balanced wine. Drink now–2032.
The previous vintage of Bedrock Wine Company Heritage 2020 —another Zinfandel-led field blend of more than two dozen grape varieties—recently claimed the #10 spot on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of 2018. All this while earning 95 points from both Spectator and Vinous.
About Bedrock Wine Company | Dream Big!
Bedrock Wine Company was founded in 2007 by Morgan Twain-Peterson in a 550 square-foot, former chicken coop. While after six years of Bedrock being a one-man show, Morgan got his best friend, Chris Cottrell to join him. They now happily have a little more space to move around in. Yet they share the same objectives that guided the winery at the start.
So, the winery’s objectives are: To channel the fruit of ancient vines into powerful, elegant, and distinctly Californian wines. In addition, spread the gospel of Syrah in California by sourcing fruit from great terroirs throughout the North Coast.
Proclaim the greatness of Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon by sparing no expense on wines of uniqueness and personality. Reclaim rose’ from the excesses of saignee and focus on precision, delicacy, aromatics, and food-friendliness.
Dream big but keep production low!
