A blend from Tegan and Olivia Passalacqua's Kirschenmann Vineyard (of Turley and Sandman fame) and the Katushas’ Vineyard (the first Bedrock purchase!). Located across Schmiedt road from each other, the site is cooler than the surrounding area and even more so than northern Napa, thanks to the influence of the Mokelumne River. The temperatures, excellent organic farming, old (126 years at Kirschenmann) and silica-rich soils make for wines of surprising finesse and aromatic exuberance.
"... 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... 92 points" -- Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
