The 2014 Proprietary Red Bedrock Heritage Proprietary Red is not yet in bottle and was scheduled to be bottled a month or so after I tasted with Twain-Peterson. The wine looks killer. Twenty-four inter-planted varieties (all put in the ground between 1888 and 1895), dominated by 55% Zinfandel and 30% Carignane, have produced this Mediterranean, full-throttle, pedal-to-the-metal, dark ruby/purple wine. Loads of grilled meat, steak tartare, Provençal herbs, lavender, blackberry, cassis and sweet cherries are all present in this lovely, full-bodied, voluptuously textured, big fruit bomb from Twain-Peterson. It’s a beauty, and best drunk over the next 5-8 years. Morgan Twain-Peterson’s 2014 harvest was the earliest in his relatively brief history of winemaking. But I suspect that 2015 was even earlier based on what was happening when I was in California. These are some of the more exciting wines from heritage sites in California, and Peterson has the right philosophy and a go-get-it attitude that is endearing and positive. All of these wines merit serious interest from readers looking for hedonistic, flavor-filled, full-throttle wines that are bursting with personality. (RP)
The 2014 The Bedrock Heritage Wine is one of the biggest, richest wines in this range. Deep, pungent and wonderfully expressive, the 2014 exudes concentration and pure pedigree. Readers will have to be patient, as the 2014 is very young and undeveloped, but its potential can't be underestimated. This is a fabulous wine in the making. 94+ points. (AG)
Complex, powerfully built and supple. Aromas of ripe blackberry, orange zest and licorice combine with long and rich flavors of dusty plum, cracked pepper and minty chocolate. A core of minerally acidity keeps this moving toward big but ripe tannins. Zinfandel and mixed blacks. Drink now through 2025. 600 cases made. (TF) Web 2016
