2016 Monte Rosso Zin. Today is day 2, after spending several hours decanting yesterday. Still super unyielding and shut down, just some faint notes of tart cherries, iron, black pepper, and baking spice.

I loved the early Monte Rosso’s especially the ‘10. Very unique earthy Zins. I continued to buy them, but none of the more recent vintages approached that unicorn ‘10.
I dipped my toe back in the water buying the ‘19. Curious again.

Over the past few days:

2013-Mixed Blacks
2016-Syrah
2017-OVZ

All excellent as usual. They all got better after an hour in the decanter.

2013 Montecillo. My first Bedrock cab. Delicious after a long decant, but tastes more like a Sonoma Coast Pinot.

2015 Gibson, 5 hour decant and gorgeous dark fruit, tannins breaking down. Way better than the bottle I had a few months ago.

2015 Ode to Lucien is delicious, in an AFWE sort of way, after 2 hour decant.

Say what?!?

I've only tasted the 2013 vintage of the "Ode to Lucien", but I would hardly think this blend to be in the ballpark of AFWE style.

The Contra Costa Mourvedre plus Mendo "Gibson Ranch" Grenache & Syrah yielded a suave, medium-plus, juicy-but-fresh experience.

I guess vintage variation plays a big part in the final product regarding this bottling...?

2018 Hudson T n S Blocks Syrah - the first 2018 I’ve tried that’s truly open for business. Blue and red fruit, some olive, supple tannins. No need to cellar these imo, unlike a bunch of other ‘18s.

2010 Pagani. Wow! This was a truly outstanding example of great Zinfandel that has had time to develop. Seamless structure, superb balance, a wonderful bouquet and ripe berries on the palate. Usually I am concerned about the ABV on these (15.1) but it is wonderfully integrated in this bottle. I did wonder if it had a bit of residual sugar, or if it was exotically ripe fruit, but by the second glass I was enjoying it too much to care. My wife kept using the word "velvet" to describe the wine. My ultimate rating note always refers to whether I wish I had more. Here the answer is a resounding, "absolutely"! Well done, Bedrock.

I had the 2014 of this last night. Delicious, with a lot of great Rhone character.

2018 Dolinsek. Obvious infanticide but drank well after a two-hour decant. Exuberant fruit with some meaty/peppery syrah-like aspects. Very enjoyable now but likely better later.

Dolinsek is always on my drink early radar as the fruit is just so delicious. They aren’t as interesting after a few years IMO.

Agree with Brian. The only one I have held on to longer than usual is the 2013. We will pop that one over Christmas Week.

Sealed the other half of the bottle and put in fridge. 48 hours later it’s a different wine, more restrained cab notes.

As I look at the label on the 2010 Bedrock Pagani, I realize I shouldn't call it a Zinfandel. It is labeled Pagani Heirloom. Antonio Galloni notes it as 65% Zinfandel, and the remainder Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet, Grand Noir, Carignane and Mourvèdre. The label notes that the vineyard yielded .5 tons per acre in 2010. That may explain the ripeness and the red licorice and raspberry notes on the finish. Morgan must be really proud of this one.

2014 Lorenzo’s Heritage tonight. It has slimmed down from release. Do I like it more or less than a few years ago...not sure. Tasty though.

The more I drink Bedrock, the more I just want to drink them when they come off the truck.

That’s the way I used to enjoy Bedrock wines but somewhere along the way I was programmed into thinking they are all better at 7 years out. I have some reprogramming of my cellar going on so I can go back to those days.

Still have all my 18 Bedrocks at my offsite locker. Will probably stay that way until Spring of 22. Drinking through 15-16 zins and starting to creep some 17s into my home cellar from offsite as I drink down space. I like the 4-5 year range on my zins. I am sure I would pop one younger if I kept that at home.

Had the '13 Dolinsek Heritage last night. Dark and a bit brooding on opening, but after an hour in the decanter it showed more blueberry and boysenberry fruit, with clove, licorice, and black pepper. Really nice now, but still not quite mature to my palate as there are some tannins that could smooth out more. A bit of warmth on the finish, but about as elegant as I could expect from a 14.8% wine.

2012 Bedrock Wine Co. Lorenzo's Heritage - USA, California, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley (12/22/2020)
Yum. When I think of varietals that are tasty first and fancy second, I think of Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. (Less Petite Sirah in this one than in later vintages, but it still comes through.) This wine tastes like sunny California.

Concentrated red fruit. Nice stiff tannins and acid that keeps you drinking. Complex and balanced. Bright round raspberry, menthol, black pepper, nutmeg, anise.

Still going strong after 8 years. Not sure there's a particular reason to wait longer, but it's not fading yet.

‘16 Limerick Lane and ‘15 Carlisle over Christmas Eve and Day. Both displayed that classic zin spice and acidity. Both were very enjoyable.... I think a slight preference to the Carlisle. Happy Holidays!

Opened an 18 OVZ. Never had a Bedrock before, so hopefully it lives up to the hype.

I Christmas day I opened the '13 Weill Vineyard Exposition One Syrah. Terrific wine. Tart plum and blackberry flavors on the tip of the tongue. Then something very surprising--a definite cinnamon flavor. I occasionally get a suggestion of cinnamon with CA PNs, but this was way beyond a suggestion. Very interesting. Terrific mouthfeel. Still sturdy tannin. This was the only bottle I had, but I also have single bottles of 2013 Exposititions Two and Three. It will be fun to check them out,

We also opened one of these with Christmas dinner. The Bedrock more than held its own along side a couple of Schrader LPV's. The flavors really pop on these Exposition #1's - always a treat. The nose is exotic and there is an amazing depth of flavors all the way through the extended finish. We caught that cinnamon note along with a trace of smoke. Nice balance too. Looking back, I think I liked the 2012 a little more, but not a thing to complain about here! Cheers!

Pretty impressed. I was in the mood for a big jammy Zin and this certainly is not that. Much more in the bright red fruit spectrum, but still very good. Will have to order a couple more bottles.

Bedrock wines can be ripe, but are not typically big and jammy.

How was the 2008 Kick Ranch? I have been eyeing up my lone bottle.
