The 2021 Bedrock Heritage Wine is a great expression of this site. Black cherry, chocolate, spice, leather and tobacco are front and center. This dark, virile Zinfandel-based field blend packs a serious punch. There's plenty of detail and nuance behind all of that intensity. The 2021 is a big wine, but also less monolithic than some previous editions. There's a bit more whole cluster in the 2021 than in the past, so perhaps that explains the wine's nuance. The 2021 is one of the best wines I have ever tasted from the Bedrock vineyard, and I say that as someone who is not yet fully convinced of the potential here.

Product Description:

Once again, Morgan Twain-Peterson MW and Chris Cottrell presented a lineup that is equally impressive for its breadth and overall quality. Like many estates, Bedrock dealt with punishingly low yields in many sites. The wines, though, are superb, as I was able to see in tank during harvest and in this most recent tasting of bottled wines. “In a year in which the vines carry very little crop, the concern is always a late season heat spike that cooks the fruit. Fortunately, we never got that,” Peterson explained. The 2021s offer a striking combination of fruit density and vibrancy. There are a number of highlights in this lineup, maybe too many! These include a stunning Semillon from old vines in Monte Rosso, the Evangelho Arieo e Vento e Amor, Heritage Wines from Bedrock Heritage, Teldeschi, Old Hill and Oakville Farmhouse and three striking Cabernets. It wouldn’t be a Bedrock tasting without a few new offerings. In 2021, these include the Zinfandel Buffalo Ode to Joel, a blend of sites that is sort of a version 2.0 of the Wedding Cuvee and a magnificent Zinfandel from the Sky Vineyard on Mt. Veeder.
