The 2009 Zinfandel Bedrock Vineyard (a blend of 95% Zinfandel and 5% Alicante Bouschet from a vineyard planted in 1888) tips the scales at a whopping 16.4% alcohol. It possesses copious graphite characteristics, a crushed rock-like minerality, a dense ruby/purple color, plenty of blueberry, black raspberry and kirsch-like fruit, a full-bodied power and abundant purity. Although not as expressive as the Monte Rosso, it is another big, back-strapping Zinfandel that should drink nicely for 5-7 years. (RP)
(15.8% alcohol here; from vines reportedly planted in 1888): Inky purple. Youthful aromas of blackcurrant and mulberry, with an exotic floral quality and a hint of potpourri. Deep, sappy and gently sweet, offering velvety dark berry and cherry compote flavors and slow-mounting spiciness. Becomes more lively with air and finishes with lingering notes of cracked pepper and five-spice powder. This should be even better with a little patience. The alcohol is heady but not too obvious.

Loaded with opulent, jammy fruit, this shows floral, boysenberry and cherry aromas, with soft, ripe flavors of Asian spice, smoky pepper and fresh sage. (TF)
