Bedrock Wine Co. was founded in 2007 by Morgan Twain-Peterson in a 550 square-foot, former chicken coop with 8 foot ceilings and no fermentation space. After six years of Bedrock being a one-man-show, Morgan was able to talk his best friend, Chris Cottrell, into moving to California from New York to join him. They now happily have a little more space to move around in but share the same objectives that guided the winery at the start.
2018 was a brilliant year for Zinfandel across California, and this wine reflects it. Plump and zesty, with lively red and black fruits, smoked pepper and plenty of savory/umami flavors. Lush and full-bodied, this is a great introduction to the Bedrock wines.
