Vineyard The Bedrock Vineyard is American vineyard royalty, considered by many the most historically and qualitatively gilded plot of land in the Sonoma Valley. Planted to vitis vinifera originally in 1854 and financed by William Tecumseh Sherman (a banker before he was a general), the vineyard has seen American winemaking grow up around it. Over that time it has been planted and replanted, with over 30 different types of grape interspersed throughout the vineyard, much of it Zinfandel and Alicante Bouschet, but also Tempranillo, Mondeuse, Carignan and Mourvèdre amongst others. It is from this 120-year-old field blend that Heritage is made. We are honored to be able to work with such amazing fruit.

Notes The classic brambly red & black fruit that you would expect from a Zinfandel dominated blend leads the aroma charge, but is backed up by dark spice and an exotic meaty quality. The mouth is a blend of explosive Zinberry fruit, dark spices and exotic
flowers. Plush, decadent and all around delicious, this is another gorgeous wine from this special vineyard site.
