RATINGS

94-96Robert M. Parker Jr.

This massive, rich, concentrated Petite Sirah is a 50-year wine. Black as a moonless night, it displays notes of graphite, incense, camphor, blueberry and blackberry liqueur. It is still in barrel, but it’s a monster...

PRODUCER

Bedrock Wine Company

Bedrock Wine Co. was founded in 2007 in a Sonoma chicken coop. But it’s not an exaggeration to say that Morgan Twain-Peterson, Bedrock’s founder and winemaker, has been in the wine business since birth. His father is Joel Peterson, founder of Ravenswood, the iconoclastic Sonoma producer known for powerhouse Zinfandel, and Morgan began blending his own wine at age five. After college in New York, Morgan worked in various areas of the wine industry before returning to California and starting Bedrock, named for one his family’s vineyards. He sources grapes from Bedrock and other vineyards throughout the region and often seeks out old vine vineyards. Bedrock’s flagship wine is the Bedrock Heritage, usually a blend of mostly Zinfandel and Carignan. Bedrock also makes Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and many red and white blends. Reviews have been highly complimentary. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that Twain-Peterson “has hit the wine scene with a bang, producing vibrant, personality-filled, delicious wines from extremely old vines and, in some cases, virtually unknown grapes, such as Aubun, Teredalgo, Trousseau Noir, Le Noir, Mission, Trousseau Gris, Grand Noir and Abouriou, as well as Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache, Carignan, Alicante Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Tempranillo. Many of these sites are heritage terroirs from the ancient past which, until Peterson's arrival, were largely ignored or were co-mingled into some innocuous industrial blend. Bedrock's portfolio is filled with exciting wines.” Twain-Peterson has earned the distinction of becoming a Master of Wine by successfully completing the rigorous program at The Institute of Masters of Wine. It is one of the mostly highly regarded qualifications in the world of fine wine.

TYPE

Red Wine, Petite Sirah

Despite its popularity, this grape is quite rare. Less than 10,000 acres are planted worldwide, with the bulk in California. In France, the grape is referred to as Durif. Not to be confused with Syrah, Petite Sirah is a cross of Syrah and Peloursin. The result is darker and fuller.
