2012 Bedrock - Zinfandel Kirschenmann Vineyard Lodi
“Most people have the assumption that Lodi is much hotter than Napa and Sonoma but the reality is that many sections are actually on par with Calistoga, St. Helena and Healdsburg. In reality, farming for yield, and all of the related growing decisions, is largely responsible for wines of, errr, less drinkable nature. And this wine is compulsively drinkable- it has exotic, red-fruited aromatics and spice, beautiful toothsome fruit, and supple but sneaky tannins that are as fine as the silica soils on which the vines grow.” -Winemaker’s Notes
Wine Advocate: 90 Points
"The 2012 Zinfandel Kirschenmann comes from a vineyard owned by Larry Turley's viticulturist and winemaker, Tegan Passalacqua, that was planted in 1915. Because of the sandy soils, the vines were never grafted to root stocks. Every Zinfandel I tasted from this vineyard revealed a Pinot Noir-like, perfumed, elegant, cranberry, cherry and dusty loamy soil-filled character. Bedrock's delicious example possesses those characteristics along with abundant fragrance. Production was only 300 cases and the wine was aged in 20% new French oak. It achieved 14.6% natural alcohol. Consume it over the next 3-4 years." -Robert Parker
