Winemakers' Notes: "This is the last Pagani Ranch that Bedrock Wine Co. will make, and it is a classic. This 1880s-planted site features a lot of dark-toned varieties in its field blend—things like Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet, Petit Bouschet, Mataro and Lenoir—which always makes it one of the broadest shouldered and most dramatic wines we make. As is typical, this wine is opaque in color and filled with the dark, rich fruit the vineyard is so well known for. A rare vineyard that cropped well in 2021, we are happy that we will have enough of this to go around. We have appreciated working with Pagani Ranch for the last decade and are very happy with this rendition, as it makes for a lovely final statement for Bedrock’s last Pagani vintage. Rather than going into the complex reasons behind our decision to part ways, we will instead appreciate the years we worked with the ranch and leave it at that.

    The 2021 Pagani Ranch is a beautiful, expressive wine from one of Sonoma Valley's great sites. Rich, pliant and explosive, the 2021 possesses captivating inner perfume, vivid fruit and exceptional balance. Sweet red cherry, blood orange, mint, spice, mocha and a kiss of new oak all race across the palate. An alluring, captivating wine, the Pagani Ranch is total sensuality. As good as the 2021 is - and it is very good - it could have been legendary. That is especially evident when looking at wines from Bedrock and Old Hill, two of the other grand crus of this stretch of vineyards in Sonoma Valley. Unfortunately, this is the last Pagani Ranch for Bedrock.
