2014 Papera. Usually I love Papera, but the acidity seemed to stick out on this wine in a way that made it pair well with food but less pleasant on its own.

2014 Bedrock Wine Co. Zinfandel Old Vine - delicious! Always impressed by how Morgan "overdelivers" with this wine (considering price). Just enjoyable and easy to drink.

Brian - I’ve had the ‘12 Lorenzo three times. I certainty found it more ready to drink than the ‘09 but thought it has tons of time left. I only have one left which I will most likely hold for another 4-5 years at a minimum.

I hear ya buddy, I was doing the same and finally opened one.....but I'm definitley holding the rest of mine for a long, long time. Chris responded to my insta post and said they just did a Lorenzo's vertical and his notes mentioned drinking the 09 to 2050+

And he said they'll be sharing the notes which will be cool to see!

Had any other Lorenzo's recently? I have a couple bottles of 2012 coming to me this fall.
I had a 13 last year that wasn't as backwards as the 09 but definitely felt like it needed more time....but I've generally thought that about most of Morgan's 13's.

As Steve mentioned, 2012 is prob the one to drink if you're opening one, but it wouldn't hurt to let em sit a while longer.

Saved a half glass on the counter and while it has definitley opened up and the red fruits are shining through.....its still noticeably tannic! I think Chris is spot on - drink through 2050+ [wow.gif]

Moving shit around I recently found an aged cache of ~ 20 bottles sitting upright in a lay-down case. This was among them: Cayuse in the nose and maybe the initial taste but the color is darker and perhaps this finish is more chemical/halide rather than truly feral. A touch thinner than Cayuse too.

Seven years may be the BR sweet spot among the less-structured, entry-level bottles.

Thanks for this note Glenn. I’ve been aging a case of these and have 9 left but haven’t checked in for a couple of years. Sounds like it’s time!

2015 Esola

Still real fresh, dark, bramble fruit, Turleyesque nose, chewy.

Has anyone opened a Wedding Cuve? I have one and I'd like to take it to a zin tasting, maybe after several hours of air. Would that be infanticide?

I had two. Opened one, loved it, but if you ONLY have one...I would hold it for a few more years.

12 Alder Springs Syrah is hitting on all cylinders now. Baker’s chocolate galore, but different than Carlisle Papa’s. Everyone loved this wine. Dark & brooding but spicy.

I was damn impressed with this wine. One of the better Bedrock's I've had in a while - Definitely earned a spot in the 'buy in every vintage' tier

Yep, I'd say let er rip! My note from last month below :)

'Drinking really well right now! Always one of my favorite early drinkers and this vintage is no different. Dusty dark fruits, rasberry, spice, and just the right amount of acidity. No rush but feel free to pop one while you wait for some of the other single Vineyard offerings to age further'

2015 Monte Rosso Zin. After ~2 hours in the decanter, I think it’s in a really nice spot. Beautiful bramble red fruits and a touch of like spices and a hint of chocolate/mocha on the finish. Still a good amount of tannin, but I love me some grip.

Will probably peak in a couple years, but can still drink now. If drinking now I'd just pour it in a glass and follow over a few hours.

I've had the 2016 Evangelho several times the past six months and it's drinking great right now. Also had the 2016 Bedrock Heritage a couple of months ago and it was open for business with maybe an hour in the decanter.

I haven't cracked a 16 either but this would 100% be my suggestion. Or the Weil Mixed Blacks.

Picked up a bottle of 2018 old vine zin--should I decant before drinking, or will this be better after a few years?
Will probably peak in a couple years, but can still drink now. If drinking now I'd just pour it in a glass and follow over a few hours.
I decanted an ‘18 for 2hrs then followed over an addition 2hrs. Thats what i would suggest. Was excellent

Immensely enjoyed a 2016 North Coast Syrah last night. Just stunning. Peppery with a touch of sweetness. Bitter chocolate. The enveloping mouthfeel of a truffle. Not jammy or a fruit bomb at all. But it's the finish that got me. Goes on for days. A stunner. And at $20/bottle? Come on. That's crazy talk. Wish I had another bottle for tonight.

2018 Enz Vineyard Heritage. Stunningly good.
+1 very pretty wine.

My wife said it was one of the better wines she has had in a bit and we don’t drink crap. So that’s saying something. Enz and Pato are my new favorite Heritages.

Drinking the 2017 Barbera right now and I absolutely love it. I really hope it becomes a regular offering.

Heard rumors about this when we got to tase with Chris last month but per Morgan's tweet, it looks like its official. Bedrock is getting Old Hill Ranch fruit!

Sure I'm not alone when I say I'm SUPER pumped about that! Cant wait to see what they're going to do with grapes from that magical vineyard.
Rich, have you popped one yet?

Stupendous.

As in stupidly great. Arguably the best young field blend that I have had from Bedrock. Popped it last night with a wonderful Cuban-style pot roast that my mom made, it slayed a mature Pomerol that I popped as well, had us negotiating for who gets what!

Nice man! I have not opened one yet, but now I really, really want to. Honestly, with that kind of praise from you, I might swing by the offsite this week and grab one. Thanks for posting!

2015 Bedrock Heritage ... yes, I know it’s relatively young, but I have more ‘15s than ‘14s and 2 of these. The brambly (sp) old vines, spice, and acidity paired very well with a Holy Grail prime ribeye on the grill.
