Description

“A first! We have worked with Teldeschi Ranch since the first vintage of Bedrock back in 2007 but it has always gone under the name Lorenzo’s Heritage Wine, named for Lorenzo Teldeschi who planted many of the original vines on the ranch. In 2020, the later-picked Carignan and Petite Sirah that normally go into Lorenzo’s were unusable due to smoke exposure, so we decided to take the opportunity to showcase the exuberant heart of that wine: the Zinfandel. Sourced primarily from the block located right behind F. Teldeschi Winery, these ancient vines are grown on the gravelly, iron-rich soils that make up the “prime rib” of the East Dry Creek Bench. Though predominately Zinfandel, there is a splash of interplanted Trousseau Noir (or Bastardo, as John Teldeschi relishes saying) and Carignan. This was the first block my dad worked with from Teldeschi back in 1982, and it has always made for a warm hug of a wine filled with cherry and black pepper that screams Dry Creek Valley. I look forward to enjoying quite a few bottles of this one!” – Morgan Twain-Peterson
