Checking in on the 15 Griffins Lair....6 hours in the decanter and still showing a little ripe. No more for awhile.

A few 2014's recently - just fresh out of quarantine from my locked-down in-law's cellar. I haven't had access to my gracefully aging Bedrocks since March, and was REALLY glad to get this case with some of my wines out for immediate consumption. Yum!!

2014 Bedrock Pagani Heritage - dark, deep, lovely wine - dark berry fruit, long finish and structure that complements the fruit. Tannin somewhat resolved but very much still there and the wine has a strong future. This is the deepest, mack-daddy of these three 2014s, no doubt the patriarch. Fine to drink now or fine to let develop for several more years. Glad I held off till now, for sure.

2014 Bedrock Monte Rosso Zinfandel - long, tasty finish is what I'd say really characterized this wine. Higher toned red cherry fruit than the other 2 for sure, with a brightness that I clearly sensed, but not as high toned as I remember the 2010 or 2012. The 2010 was almost a candy apple experience - this 2014 more center of the road for me. Delicious, and a great effort!! Probably my favorite of the three for the finish...

2014 Bedrock Heritage Wine - dark cherry but not as dark as the Pagani. Lively, with good acid and structure, but well proportioned and fairly resolved. Big enough, but not a bruiser in any relative sense. Again, glad for the "5 year" wait on this, that timing seems to be a sweet spot to let those flavors and structure come together in a satisfying way.

Love the notes on the 14's! I've only checked in on the Weil mixed blacks recently but it was also in a good spot....which isn't surprising I guess since its tends to be somewhat of an early drinker. Pumped to hear about the Dolinsek!

Steve, I found the same - the 2014 Dolinsek was very open on the nose right out of the gate, but the palate didn't really blossom until the bottle had been open for about an hour. Nonetheless, I would say this is in prime drinking window right now and has years ahead of it. Classic 'Bedrock nose' with floral / citrus aromatics (love it!) up front, and then some stone fruit going on with more coaxing. I find it amazing how Morgan unlocks aromatics in reds that I typically associate with white wines. On the palate, this is clearly very ripe but there are no jammy / baked flavors here...somehow dense and light on its feet simultaneously. Some classic Zin brambly fruit here, Bing cherry, blueberry. This is a delicious wine and overall I think it has a bit more going on aromatically than on the palate...maybe it does need a couple of more years. Anyway, we had no problem polishing the bottle off between two of us.

Excellent note Greg! And i agree 100% - the nose on Morgan's wines is one of my favorite aspects. That floral, dusty, 'Bedrock Perfume'. You can't beat it [cheers.gif]

Received my first shipment and I want to gift one of my bottles to my good friend for a wedding 5 year anniversary gift. Leaning towards using the 19 Heritage Red for the 5 year one. Or would I be better off with the 19 Evangelho Heritage Red? For the 10 year i'm most likely gifting a Turley Zin or Carlisle Zin.

Did that last weekend. Hold them for a couple months and let them settle down. Then give them a good breath of air.

Love the gift idea! I would actually go with the Evangelho for the 5-year wine (leans slightly towards the earlier drinking side) and the Bedrock/Bedrock Heritage for the 10 year wine. IMHO, the Bedrock/Bedrock needs more than 5 years to really shine. For reference, the 09 a couple months ago had MILES to go.

Plenty of Carlisle could work for the 10 as well (Carlisle Vineyard, Palisades Petite Sirah, etc), but I would be very hesitant about gifting a Turley zin for the longer-term ager (their Petites are a different story)

2015 Carlisle Vineyard

Oh the nose! I poured and gave it a whiff and I started...

Saturated red and purple fruit, expansive palate, so much juicy goodness. Damn I like RRV Zin.

When did it change from Sherman and Hookers Shebang to The Whole Shebang?

I haven’t bought any in a few years and picked this one up for cooking. I never noticed until now.

Straight off the truck today. Pop/pour. Brian mentioned above it's a little tight at the moment and he's correct. At first "blush" it was pretty bright and open, but after 30-40 minutes or so clamped down quite a bit. Good fruit/smooth/noticeable tannins. I like these with a little age, still hanging on to few 2013's. As initial impressions go and I buy this every year it's going to be a nice drink.

The 2017 Syrah blend was solid tonight but not particularly distinctive. It was appropriately paired with grilled Flannery tritip.

‘14 Dolinsek

Full go! Fruit has settled and everything is integrated nicely. No need to wait on these any longer.

Also 2012 Lorenzo, 2013 Nervo and 2016 OVZ last light

Lorenzo is unbudging, Nervo was rocking 20 minutes after cork pull and the OVZ was delicious with about a half hour of air

These are generally my cellar defenders along with the Turley Old Vines but this year they seem like they need too much time to fill that need for me.

Same here, and I went deeper on OVZ based on Morgan’s write up re: including more juice that would typically go to vineyard designated bottlings. Guessing that bodes well in a year or two?

In case you were wondering, which you probably weren’t, Ode to Lulu is not cold stabilized. If you toss the unfinished bottle in the refrigerator be careful making that last pour. It could get a little chewy.

Tried a 14 Sherman’s Gold tonight. Amador wine but I’ve no idea of the vineyard in Shenandoah. I used to roll my mc thru there a lot in the 00s.

Needs two + hours open or decanted to show its stuff.

Makes sense now why at age 6 it’s still not ready to go yet.

Maybe another 6 years.

The 2019 Old Vines Zinfandel is nothing short of astounding.

I poured a couple of ounces, and let the rest slow ox for two hours.

I couldn't resist opening the 17 Shake Ridge Barbera tonight based on a suggestion from Chris that it was good to go. he was right. a delicious and incredibly drinkable wine! I wouldn't hesitate to go ahead and open one with a pizza or red sauce. or, like we did, a fire pit and some good friends.
