2014 Monte Rosso, drinking great right now. Perfect balance of fruit, tannin, slight sweetness and good acid.

2016 Under the Mountain last night. Was in a perfect spot with 30 min of air in the glass. Bright dark fruits, white pepper and some tree resin/forest floor. Really enjoyed this - will revisit this evening as well.

2019 Wirz Riesling paired with spicy ramen. Very nice wine with great acidity and some apple, lemon and minerality on the palate.

I will circle back. It’s been in the decanter for 30 mins. My wife loves the funk and I am warming up to it.

My tasting note on the ‘16, from a 2018 consumption date.
No decant. Charcuterie/violet/dark berry nose. Pepper, cola, black raspberry bramble, smoked meats, espresso. Tastes like if you would mix Griffin’s Lair Syrah with the ‘16 Old Vine Zin. Complexity in spades

It was an accidental pull. Now 6 hours post-decant and it’s really come around. You can taste the transition from the expo series to a more traditional style of Syrah making. It’s a bit opulent, the oak holds it up nicely, the dark fruits are vibrant, but the wine is still begging for more time in bottle (unfortunately I only have one left after this mis-pull)

I agree. The bottle I opened needed several more years.

It’s lovely now and really delicious with an herbaceous nose but I’m not sure it’s getting better still. Maybe? Definitely not falling apart.

Really good, I would have guessed more Mourvèdre based on the color. Crunchy fruit, nice depth.

On day two the funk settled down and the fruit and complexity came out! I saved a half glass for day three. Still really good but if has lost a little of its edge. Really good overall.

2019 OVZ. Hesitated slightly, but then I thought opening one couldn’t hurt. Holy crap. Morgan out kicked his coverage on this one.
I am calling best OVZ ever. Wouldn’t be surprised to see these on some best of lists soon.

Morgan made 1/5 of it.

Interesting wine with accents from
different winemakers in the same bottle. 1 barrel from each of
MTP-MW, Mike Officer, Tegan Passalacqua, Bob Biale and David Gates Blended into one wine.
Mike I’d high toned fruit, Ridge American oak vanilla, Morgan’s juiciness, Tegan’s depth, Bobs structure. Or maybe it’s a different mix. I don’t know, but I do know it’s delicious. Still a bit of tannin to resolve but this is open for business right now.

Can someone on this thread steer me in the direction of...

1) Why so much love for Bedrock?

2) What’s the best bottle of Zin or Syrah (or both) to try as an introduction to their portfolio?

I joined the mailing club and I think I get something from them on the 18th (a release) per another thread.

Thanks!

I opened the 2015 Under the Mountain Carignan. Nicely done, and clearly speaks of Carignan, but with that Bedrock signature.

From the first sip, all I can think of is claret. Not sure if that is influenced by the recent podcast.

This is a bottle we are opening for Thanksgiving. How much of a decant?

The 2016 Evangelho is good to go IMO. Had it several times this year. I had a 2016 Bedrock Vineyard a couple of months ago and it was rocking with about an hour of air.

Bottle was finished tonight after VinVac. First night was PnP in a Zalto Universal. Tonight I let the first glass sit in a Zalto Burgundy for 45 and used an aerator on the second glass. I liked it better tonight as more fruit came out. I believe this wine is in an in between phase. I would decant for 60-90 minutes.

Here’s a bottle worthy of Pobega-ing:
  • 2019 Bedrock Wine Co. Zinfandel Esola Vineyard - USA, California, Sierra Foothills, Amador County (11/27/2020)
    I love every facet of this young Amador Zin. The nose soars with bing cherry, violets, and terragon. Pure cranberry and blackberry fruit with black pepper and ripe tannins that stain the palate and carry the finish. This is reminiscent of Gamay, Nebbiolo, and mountain Zin. I drink a lot of Bedrock and this is a stand-out. (94 pts.)

Nice Pobega Zach, and great note! I felt the same about a 15 Esola that I opened not long ago - absolutley delicious and one of the more exciting 'new' Vineyard offerings that I've had from Bedrock. Immediately jumped into the 'must buy' category for future offers.
