Bedrock Wine Co. Nervo Ranch Heritage Red 2019
|California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley
|Bedrock Wine Co.
A powerful, explosive wine, the 2019 Nervo Heritage Wine possesses tremendous energy right out of the gate. Crushed flowers, mint and spice lend striking aromatic nuance. The tannins are a big edgy at the moment, but time in bottle should take care of that. I imagine the 2019 will be positively stellar with a bit of bottle age. (Drink between 2026-2039)
The 2019 Nervo Ranch Heritage is an Alexander Valley release, and the vines here were planted in the late 1890s on a 30-degree slope of shale just outside the town of Geyserville. Lots of spice, herbes de Provence, mulled cherries, and licorice notes all emerge from this beauty, and it's medium-bodied, with a lively, elegant texture, present tannins, and a good finish.
This red is rustic and briary, yet packed with personality, offering notes of currant. green peppercorn, and orange-tinged bitter chocolate. Hands off for now. Best from 2022 through 2030. 200 cases made.
