Just click “Purchase Allocation” and be done with it.

lol! I tried clicking that button to see how much it would be...over 3 grand, decided to generously pass on much of my allocation to the wait list! [cheers.gif]

Case of OVZ (year over year out #1 weeknight wine) and a mixed case of heritage red, evangelho, gambrels, and staves.

Wishlisted 6 magnums (almost hoping they don’t hit as that would put me at 3 cases!!!)
Tim, Based on your experience with the OVZ bottling, do you expect the '18 to be drinking well relatively soon? Thanks. -Jim

We like ours with about 3 years on them. Right now we are finishing ‘15s and half way through our ‘16s; both are right in the zone. I think they need about a year in the cellar to get rid of the baby fat.

Now, that’s not to say I won’t “accidentally” open one right away just to check in. In those cases, they are very drinkable right out of the gate too.

Case and a half, and that’s after buying 2 cases when we visited them in June. [truce.gif]

Ordered some Carlisle, Bedrock Heritage, Grenache, and Compagni Portis. Bedrock has great release emails. Very educational with some personal touches. I really enjoy reading them.

I took Bedrock and Old Hill Heritage, plus some OVZ, of course. So hard to go bigger with Carlisle hitting at the same time and my relatively limited storage.

I'm tempted to shift to buying from the winter allocation of one and the fall allocation of the other. Is there any consensus on which is the stronger mailer for each? (I concede, of course, that they are all great and I'll be missing out on some great juice either way).

"Buying freeze" means I stuck to just about a case. OVZ is a no-brainer...so is Evangelho.

The first wrinkle in that plan is that Bedrock does three releases: a Spring (Feb), Fall (July) and Winter (November).

The second wrinkle is that while some wines are released consistently in one of the releases, Morgan often shifts wines between releases for a variety of reasons. For example, the Bedrock Heritage and OVZ are consistently in the Fall release but the Bedrock Carlisle vineyard tends to move around between the Fall and Winter releases.

In each offering there are always some gems. I tend to prefer to go a little more shallow and participate in all three releases than to focus on one.

Yikes. 2 cases of OV Zin and 2 mixed cases of all the heritages, zins (minus Esola ) and a couple whites. Normally order 15 OVZ and always wish I had bought more.

Morgan always throws some surprises in each release. Just plan to buy some of all three and you won’t miss anything.

Not quite in the same situation, but I would like to limit it to just half a case, if possible--for a couple of reasons (I know, heresy.) I've only bought since the '16 vintage, but have not had a bottle yet (unbelievable, right?). In my heart of heart, I know I'll love them, though. So, if only six bottles, what should they be? Right now, I'm thinking 3 Heritage and 3 Old Ranch. Thoughts?? Thanks, WBs!

If I just signed up to the waiting list today should I expect an offer on the 30th (provided there's any left at all)?

Its a preference thing...I personally love any and everything made from Evangelho (Bedrock, Desire Lines, D&R...), so tend to go heavy on that and the Bedrock Heritage while leaving the straight zins alone. Also HAVE to stock up on OVZ every year to leave my wife and friends stuff to drink at our house when I'm out of town (even though I do love it as well).

If I was going all reds, that's 100% what I would do.....although you should at least grab an OVZ sometime to get a feel for the style (fairly easy to find at retail depending where you live).

Agreed 100% with my bro Rich - fo sho buy the Bedrock Heritage & some Old Hill but be sure to grab the OVZ - OVZ truly is the essence/heart & soul of Bedrock that's all wrapped up in a convenient $19 package you can open anytime entirely free of guilt!!!

I haven't received my offer yet since I have not previously purchased from the winery directly. My only experience with Bedrock was through the 2015 OVZ which Wine Spectator built up with their 93 point rating and ranking as #12 on their top 100 wines of the year in 2017.

I'm afraid that WS built up my expectations more than the wine could deliver and I've not purchased another Bedrock wine since that bottle.

I've been a long time Ridge zinfandel drinker with a preference for their Geyserville bottling.

What would you all recommend if I'm going to give Bedrock another try?

You should be good. The allocations seemed really deep. Most were 12 or 24 for each of the wines!

The Old Vine Zin has never been on WS list. It was the Bedrock Bedrock Vineyard Heritage. Very different wines.

In for a mixed case of zins and Syrah. Definitely looking forward to trying the old hill ranch and sky in addition to the regular offerings.

Overall maybe try Pagani (released in Spring), or the Bedrock Heritage (this release)? OVZ is solid, though I don't have the love many have for it either, I think it's just a good value for what it is; I would never let Wine Spectator be in charge of your expectations.

I have a strong preference (with both bedrock and ridge) for the blends with a lower Zin %. I think Geyserville is ~68%? The Bedrock Heritage is in the ~55% range I think. Lorenzo's might be a good one with a solid Petit Sirah component.

Josh is right WS gave the '17 OVZ a 93 which I think was over scored. The '17 was still great though, no doubt about it. More pepper, mineral driven than big fruit. So if it wasn't your style, what about it didn't you like?

While I appreciate the offer of 120 bottles of the OVZ, that's not going to happen this time. Let me make a small pitch for the Gewurt - really punches way above it's weight for this grape. A little steep at 32 but absolutely worth it. Best thing about it is like almost all Bedrock wines it's not Alsatian/German in style; it's uniquely Californian, but also delicious.

Morgan where are the hats?!?!?!

Got a mixed case of mostly whites (love the compagni and the Waidhofen) that also included some syrah (have to keep the CFO pleased) and like most others here, got a case of OVZ. If you all haven't been to their new tasting "house" put it on your must do list next time you're in the area.

Busy week, but I am finally in for two cases. We visited the new tasting "house" last month and it was awesome all around. Jackie was great and Chris popped in for an added bonus. A must visit.

Open one. Decant it, drink. Put it away for the next day if it’s too tight, etc.

Aaaannnd... I bought. I started buying Bedrock last year. I have yet to try anything from them. Just going on Recs from here. I hope I like them!
Open one. Decant it, drink. Put it away for the next day if it’s too tight, etc.

Grabbed my usual mix of Zin/Field Blends, and wish-listed a couple bottles of the 2017 Evangelho Vineyard 'Areio e Vento e Amor'. Sounds like a fun wine.

Also put in a request to visit the new tasting room while my wife and are in in Sonoma next weekend.

These guys do great things.

Allocations definitely change the longer you wait to place your order. I guess the good news for those of us who procrastinate is the wish list requests usually get granted. That being said, I need to start ordering earlier.

If the allocation shows a drop down menu as 2 of 2, for example, you have an allocation. If the drop down says - of 2, you have an opportunity to wishlist up to 2. I never have seen an allocation “disappear.”

I have had allocations go up or down in the past if I wait to order. This has only happened on low allocations (1 or 2 bottles) and nothing for which there is an ample amount.

This release looks awesome, and so it was difficult to choose, and limit to a case. There are just too many releases coming out in the Jul-Aug time frame, and to maintain a semblance of a budget tough decisions had to be made :-)

This year I went with:

3 Bedrock Heritage
2 Limerick Lane
3 Old Hill Ranch
3 Staves of Waidhofen
1 Carlisle

I wish I could double or triple what I ordered, but am really looking forward to tasting the all the Bedrock goodness, but especially the Old Hill Ranch!

One of this lists we stumbled into relatively early on via dumb luck as much as anything else. More Bedrock in our cellar than anything else and, frankly, I'm fine with that. Great wine, great prices and absolutely great people to work with.

Hard to find a better value, for better grapes, than their ~$20 Old Vine Zin, Sonoma Coast (nee North Coast) Syrah and the new Sonoma County Cab. If these aren't your house wines, you're missing out.

My favorites are probably the Heritage blends…But, as I say that, maybe it's the Carlisle (which, sacrilege, I know, I think is as good or better than Carlisle's Carlisle), or the Monte Rosso or the Weill a Way or the Griffin's Lair…You get the idea. While some thrill me more than others, don't think we've ever had a "bad" bottle of Bedrock, or even one where I wouldn't be happy to have it again.

Even though we're beyond full up on cellar space (and, for reasons longtime forum members might recall, we are NOT getting more storage space, ever), I still could barely keep myself to 4 cases, plus another half on waitlist, and that was after culling my original cart which was 6+ even without going all-in on my allocation.

Buying freeze means 18 bottles for me. Plus a mag.

Just signed up a few weeks ago, so no offer yet. After dropping of so many lists, it strange to be trying to get on one. But if there was any list to be on in retirement, this is probably it. (Along with Carlisle which I'll never drop).
