I Find Paydirt in Bedrock


Thought I had heard about Bedrock Wine Co some time ago I had never tasted the wines before.  During my recent trip to Seattle I was quite surprised to see two bottles at such an attractive price.  I am glad I saw them for both Jenn and I very much enjoyed both bottles.  I recommend you buy both.  Let the 2012 Bedrock Wine Co., North Coast Syrah age a little while you drink the 2012 Bedrock Wine Co., Old Vine Zinfandel, Sonoma Valley.  The later of which blends in small amounts of Abouriou and Aubun as a bonus!  Lovely stuff.  These wines were purchased at Pete’s Wine of Eastlake.

2012 Bedrock Wine Co., North Coast Syrah – $27
This wine is 100% Syrah which was 33-50% whole cluster fermented with indigenous yeasts then aged for 11 months in 100% French oak of which 15% was new. Alcohol 14.5%.  With viscous legs in the glass the aromas precede the flavors.  This interesting wine had ripe, floral black fruit surrounded by a haze of fine, ripe tannins.  The acidity was seamless with more extract towards the finish.  There was the slightest hint of glycerin in the mouth feel.   Nice wine.  *** Now-2020.

2012 Bedrock Wine Co., Old Vine Zinfandel, Sonoma Valley – $27
This wine is 40% old-vine Zinfandel and 60% Carignan, Alicante, Petite Sirah, Abouriou and Aubun which was fermented with indigenous yeasts then aged in 12% new French oak.  Alcohol 14.6%.  The nose bore red fruit, ripe cranberry, and wet tobacco.  In the mouth were ample, textured flavors that were full of verve.  There was a lot of grip and ripe tannins which stuck to the lips and gums.  There were baking spices, acidity and some red fruit noticeable on the sides of the tongue.  Towards the finish were blacker flavors, dry baking spices, and dry firm tannins.  The wine enticed me to drink it.  ***Now-2018.
