Wine Notes: From vines averaging over 80 years in age planted throughout the diverse state of California, this wine aims to reflect the perfume, freshness and spice that makes Zinfandel so utterly delicious. Fermented with native yeast and minimally racked, this wine should provide great short-term drinking but will age gracefully for 5-10 years.

Winemaker Notes: "This is perhaps the most important wine we make—it is what Chris calls the "gateway drug" to Bedrock. Virtually all of the vineyards that go into this blend are also vineyard, which means in some ways it is a bit of an old vine super cuvee—albeit a value-priced one. The fulcrum of the wine is based around three old vineyards we farm in Sonoma County: Bedrock (1888), Nervo (1896), and Sodini Ranch (1905), along with a healthy dollop from the gorgeous Esola Vineyard in Amador County. The wine also has tasty morsels from Pagani Ranch, Evangelho, Pato, Papera Ranch, Teldeschi, Dolinsek Ranch, Carlisle, York Creek, and others. With the average vine age over 80 years, this is some legit old vine goodness. The 2015 is 90% Zinfandel, with the remainder made up of Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet, Grenache, Carignan, Mataro, and various other mixed varieties found interplanted in these old vineyards. This is a delicious wine that will be great out of the gate with some decanting but, as many have noted on earlier incarnations, will also reward some cellar time." - Morgan
