Bedrock Wine Company Old Vine Zinfandel 2021


I’m pretty meticulous with my tasting notes but not always the best at archiving these emails. So maybe it slipped through the cracks but I can’t find an example of me ever offering Morgan Peterson-Twain’s Bedrock Old Vine Zinfandel.

Which is shocking because it’s one of my triumvirate of California Zins along with Ridge and Matt Cline’s Three. The common thread is always ridiculously old vines, generally planted by European immigrants during the turn of the last century in sandy soils that were naturally resistant to phylloxera.

Teldeschi Ranch (1890s)
Evangelho (1890s)
Nervo (1896)
Sodini (1905)
Katushas (1915)

And don’t forget their own estate property, the oldest of the bunch was planted in 1888. The wine is always outstanding but in 2021 it’s even better (and higher scored). The wildfires caused the usual vineyard sources in Amador county to be picked early for rose.

The only available solution was to make up the difference with an extra dose of Teldeschi Ranch which composes over 20% of the blend this year. I’ll take that any day.

Expert Reviews

94 Points, Wine Spectator
Spry and briary, this Zinfandel is fun to drink, with lively black cherry, licorice and dried sage flavors, which take on richness and cracked pepper accents toward zesty tannins. Drink now through 2031.
