BEDROCK WINE CO. "The Bedrock Heritage" 2015

(Sonoma Valley, California) $98

To drink wine from a very old vine is to take into one’s body a moment from the past. In this case, a magical moment from 120 years ago when these vines were planted in Sonoma Valley. This is an uncommon wine–first, perhaps because it’s so majestically structured (age has its assets). Second, because the wine is composed of 27 different historic varieties interplanted in the same vineyard, including zinfandel, carignan, mataro, and petite sirah. This was the way great vineyards of the past were planted, and the wine is rich, precisely-focused and complex. Bedrock is owned by Morgan Twain-Peterson, the son of Joel Peterson (of Ravenswood fame).  His goal: “to channel the fruit of ancient vines into powerful, elegant, and distinctly Californian wines.” And he does.
