Bedrock Wine Co Bedrock Heritage Wine Proprietary Blend 2015 North Coast, California
Always a powerhouse wine, the 2015 vintage highlight's Morgan Twain-Peterson's ability to craft nuanced, balanced wines housed in a fruit forward supple body. A personal favorite of mine and the entire staff at Lukas, here is Robert Parker's tasting notes for this can't miss bottle of red.
2016 - 2026
Possibly the flagship wine is the 2015 Proprietary Red The Bedrock Heritage. This ancient vineyard is planted with 27 different varieties, so I won’t even begin to list them, as that is a book in itself. This is Rhône Valley-like, with notes of Mediterranean herbs, blackberries, blueberries, loamy soil notes, incense, creosote, steak tartare and pepper followed by a wine of great intensity – built like a skyscraper, with layers of fruit and extraction. It is a sensational effort, super-complex, and best drunk over the next decade.
Everybody should recognize the incredible speed at which Morgan Twain-Peterson has built his Bedrock Wine Co. into a world-class performer. Moreover, few people have done more to preserve and save heritage/ancient-vine vineyards than Peterson. Here is his new lineup of wines that shows his creative Midas touch for coaxing full character out of his diverse terroirs and blends. His commitment to excellence is something to admire.
