Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored red blend from Bedrock is a knockout! It opens with a fragrant pomegranate and black plum bouquet with a hint of old oak in the distant background. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a gorgeous blueberry and mild cherry-cola blend that is seductive and inviting, I also detected some hints of cinnamon and boysenberry. The finish is dry and its lush tannins are sticky and last for an extremely long time after the wine is gone. You will love this wine and it only gets better as it open up. I would decant this wine and serve it with a dry aged cowboy cut ribeye steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The soaring return of Lorenzo's Heritage Wine! This vineyard is actually Teldeschi Vineyard, which my family has worked with since 1984 (and before that Dad work with it at Joe Swan). The wine is named for Lorenzo Teldeschi, the grandfather of the current generation who planted many of the vines. The wine comes from dry-farmed vines planted between 1900 and 1940 on the Dry Creek bench. Composed of roughly 60% Zinfandel, 25% Carignane, and the remainder Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet, Cinsualt, Valdigue and a few other odds and ends the wine is my favorite since the 2008 vintage. Dense, beautifully fruited black raspberry and pomegranate, spice, and a framework of dusty tannins, this wine is one of my favorites of the vintage. Sure to be a mainstay of the Bedrock and Peterson family portfolio for many more years to come.
