I got you dude. Get up here and we can trade bottles.

You can tell the fruit here must be exquisitely farmed to demonstrate a taste profile like this.

Love it!! We're long overdue my man. After We've both been vaccinated we are making it happen!

Couldn't resist any longer, and popped a 2019 California Syrah last night.

Opened to a whiff of reduction, and poured into a decanter to get some air. Almost immediately blue and black fruit aromas began to show off with a little olive, and I felt a sinking feeling in my stomach as I realized that I didn't buy as much of this wine as I should have (this is bottle 1 of 6). Let the wine breathe for about an hour before my first glass and it was a beauty. Well balanced, with delicious blue and black fruit, backed up by the olive and herbs. It's a really nice Syrah that has a lot of N Rhone influence, but stays true to California. I think it's a great food wine, and should go well with many different dishes. We had it with curry chicken skewers and the pairing worked very well! Hopefully this will help me keep my paws off the other 2019s for a while.

Had a 15 OVZ over two nights and preferred night 2.

A little was left in the bottle and I had half a glass on night four. I would not recommend that plan, not undrinkable but out of balance with fruit diminished.

Found a '17 Ode to LuLu in the back of the cellar. Still singing with loads of strawberry, kiwi and a touch of orange zest. This paired well with spicy stir fry shrimp. Sad but also happy to polish off my last bottle of this vintage.

Opened a 2018 OVZ last night - bright red fruit, nice spice, very closed finish. 1/2 bottle back in fridge. Had a glass tonight and it’s rockin’ - much more depth, darker fruit profile and noticeably rounder finish. Think I need to let these breathe longer if drinking now, but the trajectory suggests quite impressive with more bottle age.

Yeah, I was underwhelmed by the ‘18 OVZ on release but it’s entering the zone now. Last few bottles have been fantastic.

2012 Bedrock Vineyard Carignan...in a super nice place right now. Fruit is still fresh and vibrant and the acid has come down just the right amount.

2015 Bedrock "Ode to Lucien"
The nose on this wine suggests that its pretty shut down at this stage right now. Even on decanting aromas are pretty muted. Let it hang out in a decanter about 30 minutes or so and then followed out of the decanter over the next 2 hours or so. Its still delicious on the palate... this was my first time with this wine so its a little bolder than I was expecting. The tannins have no rough edges and are pretty well integrated, but I think this needs some time to blossom to its true glory.

I'm impatient and opened a 2019 Dolinsek. Hadn't had anything from this vineyard. Certainly young, but very well balanced. My friend and I just kept looking at the glass saying "wow", which is always a good sign. Going to let the others sit for a few more years...hopefully.

No. In 2018, they made both. California is the new name for North Coast and is the entry level syrah. Calico was a special blend they did in 2018.

Opened my last 2015 Old Vine Zinfandel. So sad [cry.gif]

In a perfect spot right now with the tannins having softened yet the bright blackberry and black cherry fruit and bramble notes haven't faded. I'm convinced OVZ needs at least 5 years to shine.

the California Syrah is about half the cost of the Calico if I remember correctly.

2016 Old Vine Zin.
I never found the secret of keeping my hands off the OVZ and my bottles are usually gone within a year or so of receipt.
Today, I got lucky and found a ‘16 retail. OMG, time has really benefitted these. I was a pure delight of vibrant, earthy fruit.
The store I bought it at had a few more bottles. Guess where I am going tomorrow.

The OVZ definitely benefits with a little bottle age. I just had my last 2015 and it was showing amazingly.

I need to figure out how to lose a few of these in the cellar only to be discovered at some later date - 5-7 years later.

Lots of willpower for sure. I have at least a couple bottles still of each of the 2016-2018 OVZs in storage. And due to a fortunate miscalculation, 16 bottles of the 2019 still 😆

The Old Vines is a favorite but the two bottles of the 19 version I’ve had are not my preferred style.

We liked them. Deeper, more complex, but everyone finds something different in wine.

2019 Bedrock Wine Co. Heritage Wine Dolinsek Ranch

Ripe, perfumed, and slightly dusty blackberry, boysenberry, and blueberry notes waft from the glass, leading into chalk, earth, and kitchen spices enveloping the senses. The palate is deep, concentrated in flavors, with high-toned blue fruits complemented by organic soil and spices. Great acidity and chalky tannins provide structure to this medium-full bodied wine, and there is a persistent finish of chalky minerality and black pepper.

In comparison to recent vintages of Dolinsek I’ve had in their youth, this is less polished and jammy (by Morgan standards) compared to the 2017 vintage, but more giving and less austere compared to the 2018. Great for drinking now, but should age effortlessly as well.

After my recent wow with 2016 BR Heritage I brought the 15 to have slowly, over the next several nights while I work in Co with no sit-down dining.

Night one, the 15 might be better.

I grabbed another case of 18 ovz for cheaper than release from empirewine (21 w free shipping).

Every time I open bedrock I wonder why I don’t have more.

Opened this tonight. Been almost five years since I last had this. Morgan described this as dark and brooding in his release notes and that description holds today. Filled out and mature but I agree this has plenty of life left. Glad I have a couple more in the cellar.

IronGate wine in New York just posted a bunch of older Bedrocks at decent prices. I left everything but the 2010 Monte Rosso (recommend 2011 Pagani for anyone who hasn’t had it)

2010 Monte Rosso was awesome!! I still remember it. High toned and almost candied, in an interesting and good way. We had it at a BYO and the chef saw it and sat down at our table and started to drain the bottle as he charmed us. Not cool!!! I literally had to pull it away and swap it with another bottle we had open....

Pounded a 1/2 bottle of 2019 Bedrock Heritage. Could have blown through a 750. Early and open.

Lots of willpower for sure. I have at least a couple bottles still of each of the 2016-2018 OVZs in storage. And due to a fortunate miscalculation, 16 bottles of the 2019 still 😆
The ‘19 will be spectacular.
The Old Vines is a favorite but the two bottles of the 19 version I’ve had are not my preferred style.

IMHO the ‘19s need to hide in the back of the cellar for a long time. Way too angular for me right now although 4-6 days on the counter after opening does help a bit.

Tonight we try a ‘17 Pato

Pumped to hear your take on Pato! I've heard great things (Michael Martin is a bit fan) but I haven't opened one yet.

Enjoyed a 2019 OVZ and Cali Syrah in recent days. Both back up Morgan’s assertion about single-vineyard juice “trickling down” and giving these a little more structure and oomph compared to prior years.

These are always good but the 2019s are special.

  • 2017 Bedrock Wine Co. Heritage Wine Pato Vineyard - USA, California, San Francisco Bay, Contra Costa County (2/20/2021)
    Pop n pour and let sit for an hour to get some air. Dusty, earthy, with aroma of freshly crushed stone. Straight forward dark fruit, boysenberry, marionberry, black pepper spice. Mouth drying texture that I attribute to acid rather than tannin because it’s very up front. Then the young tannins kick in and cut the fruit off in an abrupt finish. Recork and check back in the next evening.
    Day 2, a musty kinda mildew-like funk on the nose. Fruit is still walled off and the palate is pretty shut down. Petite has taken over for the most part. The berry fruit from yesterday is hidden and it’s showing some heat and bitterness on the finish. I mean there’s some fruit there but this should be showing more complexity based on what’s in it and it’s still just straight forward. Not sure what to make of this wine. Perhaps it just needs more time. I won’t be in a hurry to open my other bottle.
