Thought about pobega’ing a bottle but didn’t want to kill the case before the start of summer.

You are on a roll my man - love it!! I've been REALLY tempted to check in on one of these. Did you give it some air or just pull the cork and let it rip?

Just making it through some I’ve been meaning to check in on.

Gave it 4 hours in the decanter at first, on glass 2 now about 5.5 hours from opening and just starting to hit its stride. It’s really really good, but there’s definitely no rush. Unfortunately my last bottle :(

This was unfair... Last night a 2019 BR Sonoma Cabernet. Pretty decent, but I have been sampling a number of 2018 Bordeaux at price range from $13 - $95 (Pavie Macquin). The BR paled for the most part, particularly in it price range.

Unfair in that my 2 boxes arrived within the week...

It was nice - pretty juicy with more early complexity than a similar price Napa cab. Not disappointed, just not 'Wow', due to the Bordeaux comparison. I do still believe Bordeaux is great for value if you are willing to go beyond the norm

While I agree there are many values in Bordeaux, I’m Not sure why you would even try to compare Pavie Macquin and a bedrock cab. Pavie Macquin is a super extracted right bank with only 2% cab (80% merlot and 18% cab franc) that sells for 4x the price. If that’s your style and Bedrock isn’t, great, but the comparison seems unwarranted.

If you want to compare Bedrock cab to a $20 cab-dominant haut-medoc, then I’m all ears.

  • 2019 Bedrock Wine Co. Zinfandel Carlisle Vineyard - USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley (3/23/2021)
    Fu¢kin’ a! This reminds me of what I love about young RRV Zin from Bedrock. Lovely purple fruit full of energy, verve and juicy goodness. Very reminiscent of the early Dolinseks on release.
    I remember the days when I could load up on great Bedrocks but alas I am only allotted two bottles. I could drink this wine almost any day.

Had the '14 Papera Heritage on Sunday, and it's still a very big, young wine. I picked up a few random older bottles from Winebid and most of them really seem to need a lot more time. This might have been a bit on the extracted side for my taste (my favorites so far have been the '14 Evangelho and the '13 Dolinsek), but it's loaded with blackberry and plum, pepper, spice, and really should be better in 8-10 years if it smooths out a bit.

Popped open a 2015 Bedrock Monte Rosso Zinfandel the other night. After an hour and a half decant it was beautiful and pure, dark fruit with a line of red fruit energy humming through the middle before giving way to pepper and spice notes and a hit of acidity. A knockout winner with grilled tri tip.

Opened a 2015 Under the Mountain Carignan last night. After finishing the bottle my wife casually asks if we have any more bottles. The sign of a good wine.

2019 Ode to Lucien - such nice dark fruit. Reminds me a lot of the Carlisle Bedrock Mourvèdre. This will certainly age into something great, but really enjoyable right now, even on pnp

Opened a 2016 Gambrels of the Sky Grenache. Very interesting wine. Not sure if it is the Cinsault component which I don’t have a lot of experience with but a completely different wine than I remember having even from the southern Rhône. Red fruit driven by strawberry with layers of blueberry and something black fruit oriented wrapped by an interesting mineral component. Light and lively.

Soft oily texture, lemon, grapefruit pith, lanolin, steely minerality, great acidity.

2013 Carlisle. Delicious! Beautiful nose, red fruit, very savory, just a hint of spice and a smooth finish. My daughter and I loved it.

Here is the link to the video Brian is referencing. It is an unfortunate topic but one we are still learning about in real time, I think people need to be candid and open in discussing it which is why we devoted resources to making the video. Matt, my brother-in-law, who basically imbeds with us during harvest did an incredible job on it and brings in folks like Chuy Ordaz, Brenae Royal from Monte Rosso, Will Bucklin and Sam Coturri to talk about it on top of Cody and Jake being their highly intelligent and thoughtful selves.

Thanks for posting the video link, was a slip up on my part.

Aside from no Lorenzo's in 2020, are there other heritage wines that won't be made this vintage?

Thanks for posting the video link, was a slip up on my part.

Aside from no Lorenzo's in 2020, are there other heritage wines that won't be made this vintage?
Brian,

I know Pagani will not be made in 2020 either.

Some days call for opening great things on a Thursday night. You never know if you'll have a Friday night. This was truly a beautiful wine, I wish Morgan made this every year.

One of only two wines I ever gave 100pts to on CT.

Prob the best dessert wine I've ever had! My guy Andrew Johnstone opened one when I was in Chicago and it was incredible. Lucky to have a couple in the cellar but wish I had more!!

So pumped for you to try it buddy - I'm positive you're going to dig it! Last opened one Aug 2019 and it was fire! Make sure to post a note - I only have 1 left and have been planning to hold, but could prob be convinced otherwise [cheers.gif]

2020 Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma. Much like the Old Vine Zin, if there's a better QPR consistently year after year, I haven't found it. This one was a nice balance of meyer lemon and grapefruit pith with more tropical and floral notes and a faint hint of mineral.

I've dug into the 2020 Rose, and 2020 Sauvignon Blanc recently, and both are impressive (the Rose is really starting to develop compared to when it was delivered), and I think the 2020 Sauvignon Blanc is perhaps my favorite rendition of theirs so far. I may have to ask Bedrock if they have any left, as I'll be drinking the rest of what I have in the next few months.

Good move. I've made a note for myself in future offerings to only buy the Rose, Sauv Blanc, and Old Vine Zin by the case. I stocked on the 2019 Rose like a doomsday prepper, and am still working my way through that, but might have to pop a 2020 soon based on your observation. Cheers!

I've probably had 3 bottles out of my case and a half so far. The first bottle was muted and VERY light (as indicated by Morgan's tasting note), but I feel the wine has picked up flavor and density over the last few weeks. If you have a case, it's worth it. I'm going to try to save most of the Rose until it really warms up (in Minneapolis) but couldn't resist.

Last week was rockin’...four bottles of 2018 Syrah and our last ‘19 Ode to Lulu. That Syrah seems to have hit an extra gear, it’s crazy good.
