That's the 2nd strong review I've seen on this wine recently. Going to have to open one soon. Thanks for posting!

I would imagine the first one was Tom Lee’s. That is why I opened it. Tom said drink in the next 2-3 years. I think it might last longer than that but it is in a really nice place right now.

‘13 Bedrock Papera - Fantastic! Morgan has a nice blend in this block. The nose is off the charts interesting.

2011 Monte Rosso

Showed some heat but one of the best Bedrock Monte Rosso's I've had, just a killer nose. Completely murders the 2010, imo.

Your positive take on the 2011's almost makes me wonder how we can be friends ;)

On a serious note, I only have a couple Bedrock vineyards 11's left that I'm holding in Hopes of improvement. Just havent loved the vintage and drank most of them to free up space. I do, however, have a 2010 MR kicking around that I want planning on opening for a bit. Did you pop one recently? Would love some feedback on that one if you did (despite you're obviously questionable palate)

I have enjoyed the 2010 more than the 2011 but I have a one more 2011 left so that may change. I drank my last 2010 in December and thought it was in a really good place. It was the best showing of the ones I had and didn’t seem it was on a downward slope by any means.

Yeah, after rereading "completely murders" it seemed to indicate I best put my money where my mouth is before making such emphatic proclamations...good thing doing so only entails drinking even more Bedrock so win-win either way lol.

2011 Bedrock Bedrock Heritage

Unlike the exuberant, heady 2011 Monte Rosso from last week, the 2011 Bedrock Heritage is still tightly wound up and took a month of Sundays to start opening (well, more like 90-12 minutes...but you get the point) - would highly recommend a decant if considering opening now.

Thanks for the note. I haven’t had one yet and was considering PnP. Will put it in a different queue.

Consistently one of my favorite vineyards...
  • 2013 Bedrock Wine Co. Zinfandel Kirschenmann Vineyard - USA, California, Central Valley, Lodi (5/28/2019)
    It's been almost 5 years since I've last had a Bedrock Kirschenmann Zin with the last bottle being the 2012 vintage. This is not much different and just as delicious as I remembered.

    Pretty, floral nose of violets and lavender; palate of ripe strawberry and spice, a bit of raciness overall with a tart crunchiness mid-palate and on the back end; bright acidity and overall very nicely balanced. I like it close to room temperature but with just a bit of chill as it picks up a bit of weight and the fruit is more vibrant.

2014 Bedrock Wine Co. Zinfandel Old Vine - my first foray into Morgan's 2014 and it did not disappoint. Still enjoying some 12's and 13's but I wanted to check in on this wine, always my first bottling of each vintage. Drinking well - spices and fruit on the flavor profile, not overly complex but thoroughly enjoyable, which is exactly what I wanted.

I need to add a kudo for Bedrock. Back in January we tasted at the new tasting room off the square in Sonoma and I mentioned that I had (intentionally) dropped off the list a couple of years ago. The wines were so good I asked if they could add me back to the list. Kristin very kindly put me back on the list (essentially right back where I was).

That's pretty classy. Now I just need to show some restraint!

Opened both a 2017 Coast to Foothills and a 2017 Under the Mountain this past weekend. Both delicious. the Under the Mountain I would suggest waiting before opening. Its delicious, with lots of good spice, minerality and nuance, but its very young.

2014 Weill A Way

Lovely blue fruits with a nice savoury note, vibrant colour and nose. Took at least 4 hours of air to shine though. Has that great syrah moorish lip smacking quality

Highly recommended although i might leave it a few more years to get its act together

2016 Old Vine Zin. Vintage over vintage this is becoming a go-to weekday wine in our household. It has beaten out the Turley old vine and make more fiscal sense than opening a Limerick Lane on a Tuesday.

I'd like to drink more of the Bedrock North Coast Syrah, but I can't seem to find the case of it in the cluttered mess that I call a cellar, and its getting rather annoying.

Kristin poured me the ‘16 Schmiedt Road Zinfandel yesterday when I stopped by the Hooker House to pick up some wine. Pull one, you’ll enjoy it!

2014 Sherman's Gold Zinfandel all dried up and lacking energy. Kind of early for this to be slipping down hill don't you think?

Very disappointing.

Terrible to hear this but thank you for sharing your experience, as that is really the point of this thread! The only '14 Bedrock red I have tried has been the old vine zin, as I still have a lot of 13's and a handful of 12's that have been drinking beautifully. I am going to open a '14 Sherman's Gold next.

I remember Morgan’s release notes saying this would be controversial. I only have one so I guess I should open it soon.

+1

Apparently, I have 3 bottles - will need to dig one up at the offsite.
