"Brooding but not a bruiser. Finesse combines with power, offering fervent blackberry, fruitcake spice, ground pepper and orange zest accents that build intensity toward big but polished tannins. Zinfandel, Carignan, Mataro, Syrah and Alicante Bouschet. Drink now through 2026." Wine Spectator 95 Points
"As always, from the 1888 plantings at my family’s vineyard planted in the heart of Sonoma Valley. This field blend of 27 varieties performed beautifully in 2017, doing exactly what a field blend should do in a warmer year: the Carignan, Mataro, Syrah, and other later-ripening varieties retained acidity and perfume even though earlier-ripening varieties like Petite Sirah and Tempranillo got a bit riper than normal. This has the trademark Bedrock spice, citrus oil/cointreau, and dark red fruits (Mulberry? Raspberry?) I would expect from our dearly beloved home vineyard. This is going to age quite well, though similar to 2015, this could be consumed slightly earlier thanks to the delicious fruit. Roughly 55% Zinfandel, 15% Carignan, 10% Mataro, and then everything else (Syrah, Alicante, Trousseau Noir, Mission,….you get the point). Drink 2019-2030+." Morgan Twain-Peterson
