90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The 2014 Zinfandel Old Vines is what Morgan Twain-Peterson calls "the gateway drug to Bedrock." It is a cross-AVA blend of lots culled from his other wines and blended. The 2014 is largely Zinfandel, but with some obscure mixed black varietals thrown in for added complexity. It is an outstanding, full-throttle wine with a Mediterranean personality, with loads of Provençal herbs, briary black raspberry and black cherry fruits, dusty loaminess, a lush, full-bodied mouthfeel and dark ruby/purple-tinged color. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. Morgan Twain-Peterson’s 2014 harvest was the earliest in his relatively brief history of winemaking. But I suspect that 2015 was even earlier based on what was happening when I was in California. These are some of the more exciting wines from heritage sites in California, and Peterson has the right philosophy and a go-get-it attitude that is endearing and positive. All of these wines merit serious interest from readers looking for hedonistic, flavor-filled, full-throttle wines that are bursting with personality. (10/2015)
Producer
Bedrock Wine Co. was founded in 2007 by Morgan Twain-Peterson in a 550 square-foot, former chicken coop with 8 foot ceilings and no fermentation space. After six years of Bedrock being a one-man-show, Morgan was able to talk his best friend, Chris Cottrell, into moving to California from New York to join him. They now happily have a little more space to move around in but share the same objectives that guided the winery at the start. The winerys objectives are: To channel the fruit of ancient vines into powerful, elegant, and distinctly Californian wines. To spread the gospel of Syrah in California by sourcing fruit from great terroirs throughout the North Coast. To proclaim the greatness of Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon by sparing no expense on wines of uniqueness and personality. To reclaim rose from the excesses of saignee and focus on precision, delicacy, aromatics, and food friendliness. To make fascinating and quixotic white wines from unique sites and interesting varietals. To dream big but keep production low!
