"The 2015 Pagani Heritage is the most overt and flamboyant of the Sonoma Valley wines." ~ Antonio GalloniWildly sought-after, we managed to get our hands on some Bedrock Pagani Ranch Heritage Red 2015. Get out your napkins winelovers, because this stuff is going to get your juices flowing. Waste no time and dive into your first bottle. A traditional starter is meatball and provolone sliders; and don't be stingy with the red sauce. If you'd like to play to the spice in the wine, make it Asian chicken wings with a soy and sour cherry glaze. Dinner might have to wait. If you get that far, you'll want to think meaty fare. Everything from beef, lamb, pork and Italian sausage, to hearty chicken dishes, baked pastas and more. The juiciness and dark fruit of this Pagani is perfect for baby backs, but have you ever had crispy deep-fried ribs? You should try them. Talk about decadently delicious. Braise them in the oven for 2 hours and then after they've cooled, dredge them in a flour and cornstarch mixture and deep fry them until they acquire a crispy exterior. If you're in a less decadent mood, we recommend curried Moroccan chicken or lollipop lamb chops grilled with cumin and cinnamon. All we can say is you're going to wish you had more Heritage like this...
Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "The 2015 Pagani Heritage is the most overt and flamboyant of the Sonoma Valley wines. Inky red fruit, wild flowers, violet, mint and plum infuse this super-concentrated, dense Zinfandel-based wine. Drink 2018-2028." Mar 2017
Trade Notes: "The resulting wine is an age-worthy beauty, though those who like more muscular efforts will be fine opening this in a couple years. At early glance, this looks to be the finest Pagani Ranch to date."
Bedrock Background: "Founded in 1854 by Generals William “Tecumseh” Sherman and General “Fightin’ Joe” Hooker, Bedrock Vineyard has grown grapes for over 150 years. Following the first epidemic of phylloxera in the mid-1880’s, the vineyard was replanted in 1888 by Senator George Hearst—a mining magnet, an early father of California, and the father of publisher William Randolph Hearst. It is from those 120 year old vines that the Bedrock Heirloom Wine is crafted."
