We all loved the 13 Nervo. Chris told me it was claret styled but we all thought it was a Zin thoroughbred. Inky and pungent, some spice on the medium finish.

Welp....guess I better try this again. Bottle I opened had zero nose and little/no fruit, tons of acid, and a bitter finish. That was also 2 years ago. Glad to hear this showed well my man!

Side note....how were the hangers??

Soft, mellow palate. Some sweet butter and caramel notes. Some green fruit and grapefruit. Golden color. Enjoyed, but not my favorite white. I haven’t seen any past notes, so not sure how to respond to “coming around.”

Gotcha. The wine had always drank super young/structured with the oak standing out a bit (at least to me). Sounds like its loosening up a bit. Thanks!

There was a CellarTracker tasting note this weekend that said it needed 2 hours to start shedding the oak and after 4 hours , it was a different wine.

Yep, I saw that! I've been holding off on opening the rest of mine but might check in on one and give it some air since I have a few.

We popped-and-poured. Probably took us a couple of hours to kill the bottle. But yes, near the end, those characteristics dissipated.

2015 esola this has an incredible fruity nose. I thought this would be over the top fruity but it goes to the edge but not over and remains balanced. A lot of red fruit with some spice. The bottle says zin but i would never have guessed that.

2018 California Syrah. Decanted, poured a glass, poured the rest back into the bottle. Recorked and will follow over three days.

Initial reaction - “this is delicious.” For a young and inexpensive Syrah, plenty of blue and black fruit, a little spice and lavender on the nose, and silky. Just as my recent OVZ initiation - excellent QPR and I’d like more on hand.

A '14 Weill-A-Way.
Decanted for 60 minutes before anxiety took over. Marvelous nose of blackberries with hint of vanilla without the bacon fat usually found in this grape.
Good acidity, a bit tamer than the normal SC syrah. Glad I have still have 2 bottles left.

12 MR dense and chewy as PnP. Wish I had decanted this 4+ hours.

For those that have opened the ‘18 OVZ recently, was it PnP or did you let it breathe? Planning to open this weekend.

If you have the time it's worth following in the glass over an afternoon/evening. If you're planning to serve it at a specific time, I'd decant a couple hours beforehand.

2018 Old Hill Ranch. Such a pretty wine that’s great out of the gate with pop n’ pour.
Continuing my resolution to drink more Bedrock, 2018 Old Hill Ranch Heritage in the glass tonight.

Decanted an hour. Dark, but transparent purple. An elegant zin field blend, you can tell right from the nose of flowers and rich bramble. Spicy red and purple fruit on the palate. Nice minerality finishing with slightly drying tannins. Medium light body. Best enjoyed on the cooler side, where it is focused, balanced and the flavors come though cleanly. It fell apart at room temperature, more flabby and hot, but that’s not a criticism, just a tip to enjoy this excellent juice.

I think JVIZ's notes on CT capture this wine perfectly.

2014 Under the Wire Bedrock Vineyard.

I'll confess, I still don't know what to think of the Under the Wire wines, but based on my experience, I think they reward a lot of time in the bottle. This was my last 2014 Bedrock Vineyard, and it had settled down a bit, a lot of the rough edges worn down ... in a good way. It was still a bit wooly and wild, but it tasted more refined compared to my earlier experiences with this wine. There's a little fruit, some farmers market strawberries and white pepper. It has a lost some of its sweetness and feels lighter on its feet than it once did. And the pale peach color remains captivating.

I wish they'd offer the Under the Wire wines in magnum so that I could let lay them down longer still. Regardless, I'll continue to be a buyer because I want to see where Chris and Morgan take us with this project.

You know it's a good night when we get an Andrew Johnstone TN! Good stuff buddy! And I feel the same about Under the Wire. Have not completely made up my mind but I do think that the wines have consistently gotten better and I'm hanging onto some of the first vintages to see what happens with age. Definitley most excited about the sparkling Oakville Farmhouse but have yet to open any of mine yet.

I just found two more cases of red BR, pushing cache to 239 bottles after the 2012 Monte Rosso we drank. Wife keeps telling me how much she loved that wine too.

Score! Hopefully they're 2012's!

Speaking of 2012's, I agree with your wife. Gotta be my favorite Bedrock vintage to date (with 2008 not being too far behind)

  • 2015 Bedrock Wine Co. Zinfandel Carlisle Vineyard - USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley (7/1/2020)
    When you combine the wine making talents of Bedrock with the powerhouse vineyard of Carlisle, you better buckle up, because you’re in for the zin ride of your life. This blockbuster wine has cedar and dark brambly fruit on the nose, followed by a silky palate of deep red cherry. Long finish and balanced all the way through. This just made my top 10 all-time zin list. You can enjoy this gem now or wait - it’s got a lot of life left. (94 pts.)

2017 Shake Ridge Barbera - in process but this is super juicy, reminds me a lot of D&R. Great now with a 2 hour decant, but glad to tuck my other bottle away awhile.

  • 2015 Bedrock Wine Co. Zinfandel Carlisle Vineyard - USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley (7/1/2020)
    When you combine the wine making talents of Bedrock with the powerhouse vineyard of Carlisle, you better buckle up, because you’re in for the zin ride of your life. This blockbuster wine has cedar and dark brambly fruit on the nose, followed by a silky palate of deep red cherry. Long finish and balanced all the way through. This just made my top 10 all-time zin list. You can enjoy this gem now or wait - it’s got a lot of life left. (94 pts.)
I saw this pop up in my CT feed and it made me smile. Killer note Scott - very high praise coming from you! Thanks for posting!

It's $20 a bottle. ($10 for the first days pour, $10 for the 2nd days pour). I've gone through 6 bottles of the stuff the past 6 months. That and the 2018 Turley Juvenile are the two best $20 and under Zinfandels going right now IMHO.

2014 Alta Vista Gewurtzraminer. In a great spot but probably no rush. Good stuff!

I smoked a 13 lb prime brisket-Franklin style on the BGE yesterday. Felt an American wine that would stand up to it would be the right choice. My first Bedrock (wut?) and my first Zinfandel in probably 5 or more years (wut?x2)
  • 2018 Bedrock Wine Co. Zinfandel Old Vine - USA, California (7/5/2020)
    I really dug the drinkability and the balance in this wine. It was lighter than I expected, but with good intensity of bright fruit and peppery spice that is appealing and not overdone. Feels like age will be good to this, there is certainly some back end tannin, but it is fun drinking now for its youthful shine. Excellent with my smoked brisket.

2012 Bedrock Wine Co. The Bedrock Heritage - I've consumed a lot of Bedrock wines, and this one was one of the most memorable to date. Absolutely delicious and was drained quickly on July 4th with good old fashioned burgers on the grill. Last of 4 bottles purchased and definitely the best one - worth waiting for.

I haven’t had one of these in a few years and I have a lot left. Need to open one soon.

Nice Sherri! I think 2012 is Morgan's best vintage ever. Cant think of a bad wine that I've had. Plus, they've been drinking so well for over a year now, and I think theyll hold/possibly improve for a long time.

Might need to grab my lone bottle from storage. The 2010 I had earlier this year was excellent.

2017 Bedrock Heritage.

I know it’s too young but have been on the list two years and have yet to pop one, and wanted to sample prior to being offered more in July.

While there’s no doubt it’ll improve, this is really balanced and graceful and already seriously enjoyable.

14 Compagni Portis is a real acid test. A touch warm too but I liked it. I might have guessed old world blind.

It was a touch too searing for my wife.
