Had a nice experience trying a 2017 Pato tonight. It was nice because I actually didn't enjoy it! With the number of wines they're making I'm relieved when I occasionally can cross one off my list. Quite dark and jammy, almost like a cream soda/grape soda with a soft finish. Some interesting things going on to be sure, but not for me.

I had the same reaction to this bottling... soft and jammy and relieved I didn’t have to add to the stable of “must haves”

I really need to start limiting my list of "must haves" and get more quantity of those. Already crossed off Gambrels of the Sky Grenache (well made wine, just not my style). Wish I had many more bottles of OG Bedrock Heritage and Weill A Way Mixed Blacks across multiple vintages than I currently do.

For “early drinkers” I’ve really wanted to love Evangelho because of the story and it gets so much love but every time I am left a bit disappointed. Maybe I’m just drinking them too early - I dunno. But Dolinsek... I could easily go through a case a year!

I feel the same way about Evangelho. I have a lone bottle of the 2014, maybe I should crack that open soon. Dolinsek is usually great (I think the 2018 will be phenomenal in 8-10 years given its structure), but I was underwhelmed by the 2017.

2014 Monte Rosso. What a wonderful wine! Smooth tannins. Black fruit. Wish I had a few more!

Party wine made by Bedrock, the 12th Cuvée of Shebang. Tastes similar to the OVZ, for $12.

Drank the last of my 2014s last year. Have a stash of 2016s and 2018s I’m not touching for awhile. One of my favorites from the Bedrock crew.

You're not alone - I stopped buying Evangelho as well. Tried quite a few times over multiple vintages because of the awesome story....but for me, it just never reaches the level that many of their other offerings do.

Agree on Evangelho. Don’t buy it anymore.

The Pato note above makes me sad. I love Pato, but have not popped the latest vintage yet. I thought the early ones were quite complex.

I have a couple bottles of Pato 2016 and 2017, haven’t tried yet but may need to open one soon.

Anyone else think Weill A Way Mixed Blacks is very underrated?

I also really like that one and I agree with you on the BR Heritage as well, but I think you are totally missing on Gambrels. To me it's the most exciting young Bedrock wine I've ever had with the possible exception of the Tinto (which was a one-off unicorn). Could be just that it falls outside of the realm of the historic field blends and I understand people who share a like in that style might have wildly different preferenses in their rhone varietals, but for me that one checks all the boxes.

I’m not on the BR list, but have enjoyed every wine I’ve had. Giddy when I see this 2018 OV show up at the local grocery for $20! Grabbed all they had...popped one tonight...wonderfully bright, brambly, Zinberry...an easily crushing Zin!!!

CT says 2021-2029, but I disagree. Based on what I've tried so far, the 2018s have notably more structure than the 2016 or 2017s. I'm not opening my next one until 2025 at the earliest.

That's awesome!! Such limited notes on this one - I'd love to hear if you had any addiitonal thoughts on it the flavor profile (savory, meaty, peppery, etc). Totally cool if not.....but wanted to at least ask :)

Pretty terribly with tasting notes, but it had a velvety texture in the mouth. The oak seemed really well integrated already (or maybe was just a lighter touch than I had expected). Definitely classic Syrah notes or olive earthiness and some fattiness as well. Best note I have is delicious though.

I opened my 2018 Oakville Farmhouse last night because I was with a friend who really wanted to try it. Let my sacrifice be a lesson to all of you: don't open this wine yet. gonna be good at some point but its definitely not ready yet.

My 2 cents. I opened one of these not too long ago and they need time. In fact I have found most Bedrock cabs need time.

Probably interesting to try one now.....but like you said, this must have been painfully young (agree with Glenn the 13 needs years still)

Seems like Morgans wines from this Vineyard will be some of the longest-lived out of everything that he makes (which is saying something).

Opened a 2015 Bedrock Old Vine Zin last night. Nicely integrated and ready for primetime. Should taste better tonight drinking from a wine glass, as I had brought this to a trivia night and only had Solo cups.

I opened my 2018 Oakville Farmhouse last night because I was with a friend who really wanted to try it. Let my sacrifice be a lesson to all of you: don't open this wine yet. gonna be good at some point but its definitely not ready yet.
Probably interesting to try one now.....but like you said, this must have been painfully young (agree with Glenn the 13 needs years still)

Seems like Morgans wines from this Vineyard will be some of the longest-lived out of everything that he makes (which is saying something).
honestly... it actually wasn't that interesting which was sad. I knew it was gonna be really young but was hoping some major swirling and air would at least give me something but it was just very very muted. someday it'll blossom nicely I'm sure but that day is far away from now

And the answer is??
My 2 cents. I opened one of these not too long ago and they need time. In fact I have found most Bedrock cabs need time.
Thanks. I'm not planning on opening one until at least next year.
I waited until day 2 to pass judgement as I felt this wine was weak on the pop n pour.
Yes it gained in aromatics, weight and texture with time in the glass.
Day 2 brought absolutely nothing new to the table and I'm still on the fence about buying the 2018.
If you have multiple bottles, try 1 as I would like to hear what you think.

Bummer man. Was hoping you got a little love before it completely shuts down, but sounds like that wasnt the case. Hopefully you have another bottle of two for down the road!

I've still got 1/3 of the bottle left so we'll see what happens over the next couple days. I'm holding out hope. Aromatically it was much better when I pulled the cork again earlier today. Will definitely update here if I see a big change

2018 Bedrock Ode To Lulu Rose

Bought a 6-pack of this last year, and thanks to my wife this is our last bottle. Might have to go full case this year :D

13 Pagani tonight just peeking into its drinking window for me. Just seemed a bit fragmented, maybe awkward spot of the wine's trajectory.

~ 3-5 years still?

Sounds like, I had my '13 Paganis in 2018 and 19 and they were just in a perfect place, though that is for my taste

Still sitting on my 2013 Bedrocks, including Pagani, though I hope to pop at least one of each later this year. Even at 6+ years of age, I always give the Bedrock Heritage wines a couple of hours of air time too. Cheers!

'16 Old Vine Zin last night. I love this wine, it's such great value. Went over well with the crowd too.

For $20, it was a pretty good QPR. Both pop and pour and drank over a couple hours, would decant. I'm horrible at tasting notes, but the comments on CT are in line - fruit and some savory elements.
