"The 2016 Bedrock Heritage Wine is powerful, dense and explosive. Swaths of dark, deep fruit flesh out as this ample wine shows off its beguiling personality. Earthy and savory notes add aromatic nuance. As good as the 2016 is today – and it is terrific – it is also very backward and much less overt than other vintages have been. Readers will have to be patient. The Bedrock is a field blend of 27 different grapes based on 50% Zinfandel, 20% Carignane and 4% Mataro, plus dollops of everything else. This compelling Heritage Wine will find its greatest admirers among readers who enjoy old-school, structured wines. Drinking window: 2022-2036. 95 points

Readers are going to find a number of fabulous choices among these new releases from Morgan Peterson and Chris Cottrell at Bedrock. The Russian River heritage wines in particular – Carlisle, Papera and Dolinsek – are especially brilliant, echoing a theme of sublime finesse I saw in many Russian River 2016s. Then there are the vineyard-designated Syrahs, the Montecillo Cabernet and a handful of other compelling wines. If that sounds like a long shopping list, well, it is."
