New Wines Week of February 25th


2011 Bedrock Old Vine Zinfandel
– “Bedrock is an itsy-bitsy winery making wine in a converted chicken coop. Fruit from only the most excellent vineyard sites is hand pitch-forked into the destemmer, fermented in open top redwood and stainless vats using only native yeasts, and are manually basket pressed by winemaker Morgan Twain-Peterson into the sexiest oak from the coldest French forests.”

2009 Wind Gap Sonoma Coast Syrah91+ Pts The Wine Advocate -“The 2009 Syrah is a big step up from the 2008. It boasts gorgeous richness and depth in its fruit in a suave style that is undeniably appealing. Plums, black cherries, savory herbs, tapenade and licorice flow from this juicy, fleshy Syrah. The 2009 shows quite a bit more varietal character than the 2008. The vineyard sources are the same, except that Clary Ranch accounts for 50% of the fruit in the 2009 and only 30% in the 2008. The 2009 was made with 100% whole clusters and spent 18 months in neutral oak barrels.”

2008 Andrew Will Two Blondes Vineyard93 Points Wine Advocate – “The 2008 Two Blondes is a blend of 42% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc, and 9% Malbec. Sexy, spicy, complex aromas lead to a savory, plush, rich offering with outstanding volume, grip, and length. It is more forward than the two preceding wines and will continue to deliver pleasure through 2020.”

2009 Tenuta Monteti Caburnio – “Fresh and focused flavors of black cherry, black currant and herbs that border on jammy, but never cross the line. Supple and smooth, offering ripe tannins and bright acidity for structure, with excellent length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante and Merlot.”
