We did three bottles of 18 OVZ over the weekend.
Just delicious.
Good thing I have some 19 ordered.

About a week ago, had my lone Wedrock. Fantastic! Drink it now, save it for later. Either way, you will not be disappointed. Wish I had more or they would consider this an annual release.

Thanks for the note, and opening one up! I've got only one as well. A yearly release would be great, and a blend of good vineyards would likely yield an equally good (if not better) wine? I've liked Carlisle Piner-Olivet over the last few years.

I had two. Opened one and loved it. Will probably sit on the other for a year or two.

Rich, I tend to enjoy younger wines, but I really don't think there is a miss here.

Two nights ago we had the 2016 Chuy Chardonnay and last night the 2012 Compagni Portis. We loved both of them.

2017 Esola Zinfandel. Popped one after seeing some recent TNs on CT. The nose is pretty subdued, just a hint of ripe black fruit, but on the palate there are layers of blackberry, black cherry, strawberry, anise, cocoa powder, and baking spices with a core of brambly zin character. Good lift and acidity on the palate as per usual in the Bedrock line-up, tannins are fine-grained and not incorporated yet. Will wait another 5-7 years for my next bottle.

You probably saw my note neener

I agree 100% on waiting 5+ years to revisit. How much air did you give it? I found it pretty tightly wound and needing a good 4+ hours to start showing itself.

I poured it and just followed over the evening. On the palate it opened up after a couple hours but the nose was still muted. I’ll check in again tonight.

I picked up some 2014 bedrock vineyard heritage as part of my most recent order that will ship in October. How are these showing currently, for those that have opened recently? Worth laying them down a while longer? Not in a rush to open just trying to gauge. Thanks!

If you have a 15 Esola, that was drinking really well at pnp a couple weeks ago. First 15 that I've tried and was very happy with it!

I have not opened one of mine yet but back in March, a number of people on here said great with a two hour decant.

Making sure all my Bedrock is at my offsite locker and away from my reach. Going to be tough to age these things when I've bought so many bottles. Have some Lulu in the fridge for later tonight however.

Is the Lulu something you can hang onto for a year or two or does it really need to be drunk sooner rather than later?

What AD said directly above me. If you can hold Lulu another year I bet it gets better but we drink these down fairly regularly. I did buy a case of them this year along with another winery's Rose so we haven't quite finished all of the Lulu yet.

Yea I bought a couple for the first time and was planning to hang onto one, but a week later they were gone...

2015 Ode to Lucien ... 75% Mataro and just a wonderful long finish and classic Bedrock spice and acidity. Paired nicely with a Holy Grail ribeye.

  • 2016 Bedrock Wine Co. Riesling Wirz Vineyard - USA, California, Central Coast, Cienega Valley (9/4/2020)
    Dark color for a Riesling of this age - golden yellow. Nose is rubber, lime, spritzy-fresh, unripe pineapple, spiced pear, some pine, a little smooth-sweet character like light brown sugar. Palate is soft on entry, a little hot and bitter in the middle, but builds to a medium-high-acid, juuuust slightly off-dry, moreish finish, savory at the end. A nice domestic expression of Riesling. In an affordable category it’s not a stellar QPR, but was very nice tonight with Vietnamese food. 13.5%, $19.50. (88 pts.)

Opened the first of my 2013 Monte Rosso and found it to have too much raisin character. Looking at notes on the same wine, I’m assuming (hoping) that this was an off bottle as it doesn’t seem in line with others’ experiences.

2015 OVZ & 2016 Syrah. Both are drinking excellent. Our daughters had the OVZ and my wife and I enjoyed the Syrah. The hangers were great as well.

Weather has been more tame here, but didn’t stop me from grabbing a couple more bottles from the locker that I had been saving to give a little age. Wife nearly crushed a bottle on her own!

Seems like a wise plan.

I have not opened a bottle yet (also plan on waiting), but for reference, this wine was incredible as a barrel sample. Stood out to me amongst a bunch of great Bedrock wines. I'm certainly no expert when it comes to predicting what the future may hold based off of a barrel sample.....but if I was a betting man, my money would be on this being a killer wine in a handful of years :)
Thanks for the data point Rich. On day 3, it definitely showed the best. The lesson here is that the mountain Zins really need 10+ years to shine their best. To me, that list includes:
Nervo
Sky
Monte Rosso
... any others?
I sorta wish I had read this before I opened one, but then again, glad I didn’t. This 2017 Bedrock Sky Zin is smokin, and yes, as much about potential as anything. The raw materials are fantastic. A huge blast of dark berry briar patch fruit and pepper. Lithe, too. Like a lean Pre, all grit and grind, crushing that 5K with raw power on a lean physique. A little earthy rusticity. I just ordered a bunch of Lore’s Sky Vineyard Zins, if y’all want the original. Check out his site, he’s dramatically cutting the prices of some wines, feel bad, prolly feeling the effects of our bizarre economic times right now. This is a winery to support. Glad Morgan grabbed some fruit from this killer vineyard. Hard to think of better Labor Day wines than a good ‘ole ‘Murica Zin.

Definitely a good time to support Sky, believe they lost most of the Vineyard to fire in 18? Great mountain Zin at very reasonable prices.

Oh wow that’s terrible, really sorry to hear that. At $25, could be the QPR of the year.

Thanks for the data point Rich. On day 3, it definitely showed the best. The lesson here is that the mountain Zins really need 10+ years to shine their best. To me, that list includes:
Nervo
Sky
Monte Rosso
... any others?
I sorta wish I had read this before I opened one, but then again, glad I didn’t. This 2017 Bedrock Sky Zin is smokin, and yes, as much about potential as anything. The raw materials are fantastic. A huge blast of dark berry briar patch fruit and pepper. Lithe, too. Like a lean Pre, all grit and grind, crushing that 5K with raw power on a lean physique. A little earthy rusticity. I just ordered a bunch of Lore’s Sky Vineyard Zins, if y’all want the original. Check out his site, he’s dramatically cutting the prices of some wines, feel bad, prolly feeling the effects of our bizarre economic times right now. This is a winery to support. Glad Morgan grabbed some fruit from this killer vineyard. Hard to think of better Labor Day wines than a good ‘ole ‘Murica Zin.

Thanks Kenny H for gifting me this wine, you are a scholar (well, sorta) and a gentleman (decidedly not), and a good friend!
Definitely a good time to support Sky, believe they lost most of the Vineyard to fire in 18? Great mountain Zin at very reasonable prices.
There is a Bedrock podcast about Sky and Chris talks about the fire with the founder’s daughter. Sounds like an interesting place with a long history.

Just a killer note Robert! Also appreciate the heads up about the pricing on Sky Vineyard Zin's - would love to support them as well and website seems to be working from my phone. Will definitley be grabbing some Zin and prob give that 'halfling' (50/50 syrah and Zin) a shot.

Drinking a 2018 T 'n' S Blocks Syrah. It was a little too fat/plump on initial pour (did not decant), but opened up a little bit over the next hour. Probably should have given those one a little more time or decanted a few hours, but curiosity got the best of me (after drinking one of the California Syrah's a night earlier).

This one is an 88 tonight for me, with some upside into the low 90s with more time in the cellar.

Morgan’s Hudson Syrahs need plenty of time. I don’t plan on opening one of these for around 5 more years.

You seriously can't go wrong with Morgan's 2012's. Gotta be my favorite Bedrock vintage, followed by 2008.

Stopped by the tasting room yesterday and reloaded with a mixed case of ‘18 Lulu and ‘18 Judge SB. We go through these like candy in the Summer. Almost 2 cases of each so far this year.

2017 Shake Ridge Barbara. The Dirty and Rowdy thread got me hankering for one of these.
I hope Morgan makes more. One of my favorites of his newer releases. A lot going on with candied raspberry, white pepper, red licorice, orange oil. Long mineral tinged finish. Drinking great right now with a short decant.

A couple of nights ago the 2016 Staves of Waidhofen rocked with gazpacho and bruschetta.
