Winemaker's notes: "This is the wine I started the winery to make. 2016 is one of my favorite Bedrock Heritage wines to date, as I tend to prefer vintages that are less about immediate fruit intensity and ripeness and more in line with the old-school “California Claret” these vines were originally planted to make. The wine, a blend of the 27 varieties interplanted at our family’s vineyard is roughly 50% Zinfandel, 20% Carignan, 4% Mataro with the reminder being everything else found in the field. This wine will last a long time and decanting is highly recommended if consuming in the next few years. I have had a few of the more recent vintage wines that really show nicely after 12-24 hours of double-decanting. THE WINE ADVOCATE Rating: 93 - Drink Date: 2018 - 2028 - "A blend of 50% Zinfandel, 18% Carignan and 4% Mataro with more than 20 other interplanted mixed black varieties, the medium to deep garnet colored 2016 Bedrock Heritage Wine has a fragrant noseand the palate is full-bodied, rich and concentrated with very firm, chewy tannins and a lively line, finishing long and earthy.
