BEDROCK '13 PAPERA.jpg

2013 Bedrock Wine Co. Heritage Wine Papera Ranch - best '13 Bedrock I have had BY FAR! Excellent and improved with each class. Think the 13's are finally in their drinking window (for me)!
YES!! Totally agree Sherri - Had the Papera and Carlisle back in Dec and they were the first wines from 13 that I have enjoyed/felt like were finally entering their drinking window. You should try the Carlisle next- I actually preferred that one slightly more (bit deeper/more savory and a nice hint of mint that was really nice)
So I opened a 2013 Papera and yeah, it was pretty good...but man alive, it was tight as nails! To be fair, we killed the bottle in 90 minutes (yeah, the stupid bowl was really stupid this year lol) so it really didn't get tons of air but based on all the positives, was super surprised at how closed it was showing! I'm probably not gonna open up another one for 2-3 years, maybe more. It was clearly a super high quality bottle of Bedrock tho, can't wait for the fireworks!

Otoh, drinking a 2013 Carlisle Papera tonight and just dayum.

Any idea when their 2018 rose will release? I think 2017 dropped around the same time

Mmmm. I loved that wine. Drank my last one about a year ago. BIG wine (especially for Bedrock standards) but so damn tasty.

I hear you buddy - I feel like the Bedrock 13's are still improving for sure....but at least starting to hit their drinking window. 6 months ago, I was getting zero pleasure from them (aside from the OVZ)

And so crazy about the Carlisle 13's and how well they're drinking vs. Bedrock. I'll have to pull a Papera soon!

It will be in the release next week. I saw that Morgan was already pouring it at some events last weekend.

Any idea as to when the Save the Date will come out? I believe it was the 6th last year, with the offering being on the 13th.

Spring Release will be out on the 19th, Save the Date will be out the 12th. We are finalizing the wines but there will be some fun stuff on there including 18 Lulu (maybe my favorite ever), 16 Sky Syrah, 17 Montecillo Cab, 17 Lorenzo's Heritage and Nervo Heritage, 17 Chuy Chard and a few others. I will post the notes when I get them written!

Opened a ‘16 OVZ last night. Wine had made its way all the way up to the top of the cork and the wine was off, for sure. :(

Bought one of these from retail yesterday. Good chance it gets opened tonight. Hopefully it isn’t corked.

Was $26+ tax. That isn’t too much of a premium for these wines is it?

If it ends up being corked I would reach out to Chris or Morgan. They would stand behind their product.

2012 Kick Ranch Sauvignon Blanc. We remembered this vintage's better days. This one got buried in the cellar.

2013 Pagani Heritage.

YES - Another enjoyable 13! Vintage is just starting to enter its drinking window and this bottle is further proof. Dusty purple fruit taking center stage with lots of acidity and a nice finish. Still plenty of room to develop further but worth popping one now to check in if you have multiples.

Finally opened it tonight. It’s fantastic.

Opened the 2017 Pato last night. Two hour decant. Reminds me of the Weill O'Way Mixed Blacks but with more savory character and a more polished mouthfeel overall. Black fruits, black pepper, espresso, smoke, a little meat, purple flowers, and dried herbs.

Just opened a 2013 Griffin's Lair Syrah. Super smokey, dark and brooding, under ripe blackberry, black pepper, violets. Palate was still fairly tight, savory, and tannic even with a long decant. Recommend opening either younger or older than this!

Tonight an ‘11 Old Vine Zinfandel that was in full stride from the moment I pulled the cork. Warm strawberry rhubarb pie with dried flowers sprinkled on top. Very Nebbiolo-like nose. Soft sweet red fruit, Zin berry spice, resolved tannins. Would love to source more of these. A real treat.
