A wee BP:
- When I drink a Bedrock Zin in the recreational mode (it’s my recreational drug of choice), you just shake your head in wonderment over how danged tasty they are. But they, in fact, have a lot of subtilties that are not at all obvious unless you taste a bunch of them side-by-side. If I didn’t have such a doofus of a palate, I suppose the Sodini terroir would whack me upside the head & I’d appreciate the wine more. But…danged…this is just such good drinking.
Just ordered the Carlisle Sodini Zin today. Looking forward to trying them together. Sodini is located just across the road & west a ways from the Bilbro’s CollinsVnyd/LimerickLane. I believe Jake&Scot will be getting some Sodini in the future. The good news is that Jake sold some of the LimerickLane 1910 block to MikeOfficer starting in the 2012 vintage. Things are a-happenin’ there on LimerickLane these days.
