Winemaker Comments: The grand poobah! The 2011 Bedrock Heritage Wine comes from vines planted 123 years ago at my family’s vineyard in Sonoma Valley. It is a field-blend of 22 different varieties. Dominated by Zinfandel the remaining 40% of the wine is Carignane, Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet, Grand Noir de la Calmette, Syrah, Tempranillo, Trousseau, Mission, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and many others. Bedrock lies in the alluvial wash of the famed Monte Rosso Vineyard and is the only vineyard on the valley floor to share the same Red Hill Clay Loam soils that pour downward from the west slopes of Mount Veeder. The 2011 is dominated by fragrant red fruits, spices, and a dollop of orange oil. Like all the Sonoma Valley offerings from 2011 the wine is nervy and young and will need a few years to loosen its sinewy limbs and limber up.
