The 2012 Zinfandel Bedrock Vineyard (97% Zinfandel and 3% mixed blacks, primarily Petite Sirah, Mourvedre and Alicante Bouchet) tips the scales at 15.5% alcohol. Officer calls this a relatively warm site for Zinfandel. This dark ruby/purple-colored, full-bodied effort exhibits great fruit in the aromatics, attack and mouthfeel. There are lots of red and black fruit notes, no oak to speak of, and a luscious, heady finish. It should drink nicely for 4-6 years or longer.

(includes 3% mixed blacks; 15.5% alcohol): Inky ruby. A highly aromatic bouquet displays scents of fresh black and blue fruits, floral pastilles and peppery spices. Shockingly lithe and precise for its heft, offering vibrant blueberry and licorice pastille flavors and a jolt of smoky minerals. This really stains the palate. Smoothly marries power and vivacity and finishes sweet, gently tannic and very long.
