Crazy to think this is the 15th bottling we have made of this wine! The 1888 plantings at our home ranch produced very small amounts of dense, rich fruit in 2021 that will make this one of the greatest Bedrock Heritage Wines we have made. The wonderfully even growing season and cool August allowed sugars to accumulate slowly and natural acidity to remain bright, making for a classically composed expression of our Sonoma Valley site. As always, this is a field-blend of over 20 different varieties interplanted on the iron-rich, red and cobbly soils of our home ranch. This vineyard is the gravitational center of everything else we do at Bedrock-it is the vineyard we walk with our families in, it is where we have learned via trial and error how to farm. It is in constant evolution, just like our winery and ourselves, and year after year we feel deeper gratitude for its existence and to my father for having the foresight to purchase it nearly two decades ago.

A deep but transparent red, the 2021 The Bedrock Heritage is about 50% Zinfandel and offers aromas of fresh pencil shavings, black cherry, roasted herbs, and fresh flowers. Full-bodied, it has fine sweet tannins and note of ripe berries, mocha, and turned soil. Drink over the next 10 years.

The 2021 Bedrock Heritage Wine is a great expression of this site. Black cherry, chocolate, spice, leather and tobacco are front and center. This dark, virile Zinfandel-based field blend packs a serious punch. There's plenty of detail and nuance behind all of that intensity. The 2021 is a big wine, but also less monolithic than some previous editions. There's a bit more whole cluster in the 2021 than in the past, so perhaps that explains the wine's nuance. The 2021 is one of the best wines I have ever tasted from the Bedrock vineyard, and I say that as someone who is not yet fully convinced of the potential here.
