From a vineyard planted in 1910 on Goldridge soils, the 2012 Dolinsec Heritage is a blend of 70% Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouchet and a handful of other "mystery" varietals. Cropped at one ton of fruit per acre, and aged in 25% new oak, this is a bigger wine at 15.% alcohol. Wow! What a terrific wine. Generously perfumed with lots of black fruits, licorice, lavender and Provencal garrigue notes, this beauty offers a full-bodied texture along with a sexy, up-front, delicious style that begs for consumption now and over the next 4-5 years.

Bright ruby-red. Complex, perfumed scents of black and blue fruits, potpourri and pipe tobacco; smells like there's some cabernet in here but there's not. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering sweet blueberry and cassis flavors and a bracing jolt of peppery spices. Finishes smooth and round, leaving blue fruit and violet notes behind. (ST)
The 2012 Dolinsek Ranch Heritage impresses for its depth and pure power. Black fruit, smoke, sage, tobacco and licorice jump from the glass. The flavors are more savory and than fruit-driven, while distinctly bright notes inform the sweet, perfumed finish. There is more than enough structure here to support a number of years in the cellar. This is another terrific showing from Bedrock. The Dolinsek is a Zinfnadel-based field blend from vines planted in 1910. (AG)
