How was the 2008 Kick Ranch? I have been eyeing up my lone bottle.
Agreed! Would love to hear your thoughts on both of those wines actually!

Yes, I think we all have one sole bottle. It was great, solid smoky profile, drank smoothly with no youth or excess tannins in the way of enjoyment. Drank over 1-2 days and remained consistent. Drink away!

Opened the 2018 Nervo yesterday. Eight hours of decanting was absolutely necessary. After that it was stellar.

Question for the Bedrock faithful:

if you wanted to introduce someone to Bedrock Wine Co using a recent vintage (18 or 19) for them to drink soon to give them a good idea of the style of wine, what would you choose? Ive had some good young Evanghelos but I was curious what other suggestions people have. I'd prefer not OVZ.

Disagree. Yes it’s good very young but it tends to be a different wine than many of the others.

I’d be in favor of a Bedrock Heritage.

+1. I’m pretty lukewarm on Evangelho, but Dolinsek is crazy good when young.

+1 Morgan talks about starting Bedrock just to make wines like the Bedrock Heritage. It’s the flagship.

Because we need to completely mess you up, I would go for Evangelho or Lorenzo’s.

I thought about the Bedrock Heritage but I would not touch an 18 or 19 now as these need at least 5 years IMO. Also Bedrock makes a lot of different styles therefore it’s hard to say one.

This is what makes Bedrock great and unique! They makes several excellent wines in very different styles.

this was my original thought, because, I mean... its Bedrock heritage. but its typically one of the Heritage wines that I feel like could use the most time. Its still high in the consideration though. because... its Bedrock's Heritage. lol

Hey I have no argument there. They own the vineyard, they've farmed it for a few years, theyre proud of it, its delicious. Ive loved my recent bottles

I picked up some ‘14 bedrock heritage last order, so that could be great opportunity to get some with bottle age for introduction.

Morgan says that Lorenzo needs a full day decant in the first year and then hold for 5-8 years.

Another vote for Evangelho. It’s relatively accessible early on, reliably delicious, both aromatically and texturally interesting, and along with Bedrock Heritage and OVZ, the cuvée I see most often at retail.

Another strong vote for Dolinsek here. IMHO it is without a doubt the single Vineyard offering that drinks the best early on almost every vintage. Mixed Blacks would be a close second for me, but I feel like Dolinsek is more representative of the Bedrock style.

Evangelho also seems to drink pretty well a bit earlier than other offerings....but its such an outlier to me in regards to the flavor that I wouldn't suggest that one being the bar in which you judge all of Morgan's wines. Take that with a grain of salt though as I've mentioned before that I'm not the biggest fan of Evengelho (although the 15 I tried a few months back was easily the best one I've ever had).

I also agree that if you're looking for a wine that best encapsulates the Bedrock style, that Bedrock Vineyard is the way to go. My favorite offering for sure. They need a lot of time though, so decant heavily if you go that route.

Not quite the same thing, but a 2017 Once & Future Teldeschi was quite reticent in December. It made me wary.

I hear you. CT notes -and having multiple bottles- gave me confidence to try. Plus I’ve only been on the list a few years and wanted a better sense for what I was cellaring anyhow.

Opened the 2019 Bien Nacido Chardonnay. I'm not nearly as versed in Morgan's whites as I am his reds, but this is pretty tasty and quite mineral-driven as noted in Morgan's tasting note. Just a touch of reduction with underripe pineapple, green apple, and lime zest. You can really taste the warmth of the vintage in the wine.

The 2018 OVZ is rocking on PnP right now. Beautiful raspberry fruit and good acidity to frame it. Still has some noticeable tannins but they are pleasant rather than rough. Wish I had gotten more of this than just a few bottles...

I had the ‘18 and ‘19 Pato on back to back nights. I love Pato every since they came out in ‘17. I think it rivals the Bedrock Heritage in complexity and can be consumed early without losing any of the layers.
The ‘17 and ‘18 had such an extraordinary blend of licorice, tobacco and red fruits, but leaning more savory, almost cab like. The ‘19 while having some of those notes comes across more like a Zin. A bit sweeter, without being sweet. Still very good, just a tad different than the earlier renditions.

I really need to open a Pato. Like you said, you've been raving about that wine since the 17 vintage and I've still yet to pop one. Will look to remedy that soon.

Thanks for the note!

Am I allowed to say Wilde Farm Bedrock? 2015. Love this wine and after being open for five hours I think it’s as good a bottle as I’ve had. Pretty sure it would be unplaceable to me blind. A little bit California fruit, a little bit Loire cab franc, maybe some stemmy beaujolais? I think it’s completely delightful.

I bought nearly a case of that wine, trusting the vineyard and the winemaker. Every bottle has been a struggle.

It’s easily my favorite WF wine and the only one I like enough to repurchase. My taste buds may just be weird but it’s squarely on the pleasurable side of eccentric for me. [cheers.gif]

Never had the ‘15, but I’ve had two bottles of the ‘17 Wilde Farm Bedrock in the last 8 weeks, and both were delicious.

I had a number across two vintages that I’ve given away because I just did not like them

    Notes from Day 2. Tobacco, cedar, graphite, cassis and black currant greet the nose. I would say it screams Oakville but someone else stole that line. [wink.gif]
    Earthy black raspberry, spice, layered, great depth and balance. Chalky tart finish, more spice. On par with every other vintage I’ve tasted, meaning it’s freaking awesome. Still lots of room to evolve and soften but being able to pull the different nuances of a young wine is half the fun for me. My other bottle gets stashed in the growing vertical.

Damn, that sounds really good Brian - nice work buddy!

How was it on day 1? Guessing fairly tight (hence the day 2 note), yeah?

Day 1 was very enjoyable but I could tell there was a lot to still uncoil. I was correct too!

2017 OVZ drinking very well after an hour decant. This is really hitting its stride.

Drinking '14 Evangelho Heritage tonight...such pretty, pure boysenberry fruit, with black pepper, and light meat and smoke notes. Softening up nicely with a couple of hours of air, this doesn't have a ton of tannin, but I still think it will be more complex and supple in 2-3 years.

2015 Under the Mountain...such a different heritage. Darker fruited than expected. Nice with a long decant.

2012 Lorenzo's. This has become a bit more savory since the last time I had it, with the Petite Sirah shining through. Still a great nose and absolutley delicious, but also a little tannic on the finish. Honestly reminded me a bit of the 09 with the meaty/structure, but more approachable. I think this wine will be long-lived, but not as long as the 09.
