Lorenzo’s Heritage Red Wine

  • Producer: Bedrock Wine Company
  • Location: Sonoma County, California
  • Year: 2016
  • Type: Blend – Petit Sirah, Zinfandel, and Carignan
  • Price estimate: $39 (direct from winery)
  • Tasting notes: Inky and dark purple in the glass. Notes of raspberry and blueberry on the nose. First sip is like silk – smooth with a great mouthfeel. Dark red fruits, a little cherry, but not much and a lot more raspberry than anticipated. Really beautiful finish with notes of chocolate and more raspberry. A little hint of wood, but not unpleasant.
  • Conclusions: Amazingly good. I would be happy with a bottle of this any day of the week, and especially if I was celebrating something.
  • Notes: Bob and I decided to open one of our better bottles the other week just because. We had some really nice cheese from the cheese shop and thought a nice bottle of wine would be appropriate. Bedrock did it again with this wine – really well-balanced – good acidity, but not overpowering, excellent texture to the wine and a lot of flavor. This is a wine that you can sip and enjoy or drink while having some good food and conversation. 14.6% alcohol by volume.
