Wine Review: This medium purple colored Zinfandel opens with a blackberry and black plum bouquet with hints of black olive and anise. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied and bright medium plus acidity. We also found it to be quite powerful and juicy. This flavor profile is stewed black plum and flinty mineral blend with notes of gentle oak and black raspberry. We also detected hints of dried herbs, baking spice and anise. The finish is dry and its moderate dusty tannins are very nicely extended. The Panel would pair this well-structured Zin with NY Strip steak with a dollop of Great Hill Blue cheese butter. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2019 Bedrock Zinfandel has intense black fruit, currants and aromatic spices which grace the powerful, complex bouquet of this wine. Undercurrents of mint and vanilla add depth to the bouquet. In the mouth the wine is broad, rich, and spicy. The finish is long with complex dark fruit flavors that are persistent. The assertive structure of this wine testifies to the high skin to juice ratio that is typical of this old, dry farmed vineyard. This wine sings of its location and history.
