One of the most forward and immediately delicious of the 2020 wines, Schmiedt Road is from vines planted in the 1910s on Tokay Fine Sandy Loam soils just north of Victor in East Lodi. A blend of our Katushas' Vineyard with fruit from Kirschenmann across the street, the wine is almost entirely Zinfandel with a dollop of interplanted Carignan, Mission, and Flame Tokay. In 2020, the vines averaged about 2 tons per acre, which resulted in a wine with lovely depth but also freshness and vivid fruit. Though Lodi tends to be known for heavyweight wines, we find the cool breezes of the nearby Mokelumne River, the sandy soils, diligent farming, and picking at sane sugar levels makes for a wine of delicious freshness and elegance.

The 2020 Zinfandel Schmiedt Road is rich and maybe a bit more generous than it usually is, but that just adds to its immediacy. RIch, heady Zinfandel flavors scream out of the glass in this wonderfully expressive and inviting 2020 from Bedrock. There is a bit of Carignan, Mission, and Flame Tokay in the blend, but Zinfandel carries the wines. As always, the Schmiedt Road is a blend taken from Katushas and Kirschenmann.

A bit of a bruiser, this packs potent blackberry, sweet anise and smoked pepper flavors that build toward broad-shouldered tannins. Best from 2023 through 2030. 250 cases made.
