this was how much? $12! You've got to be kidding. What a mouthful of flavor. Long lingering finish.

solid spice lies beneath a gorgeous red berry driven nose. Quality that is worth the price.

remarkable old world wine that I could have been completely satisfied just smelling it. Palate was rustic and wonderful, deep favors, long finish.

incredible levels of salinity. A little brioche on the nose, to go with the citrus. Reverberating acidity on the finish.

Last of the '08's. Truly remarkable on night two. This has 10+ years left.

thick, voluptuous. Power-packed. I'm getting spoiled by Bedrock's more restrained Zins. I'm beginning to prefer that style, Biale notwithstanding.

compelling but inevitably boring. It has all the components of a great wine, but nothing stands out. Muted nose doesn't help. Weighty and significant body. Long finish, but again not particularly interesting.

What a difference a year makes. This wine has come together beautifully. Gorgeous nose, fattened up mid-palate. One of the finest $20 bottles of wine I have ever had. Not a single off note. Long finish. This will have me exploring Delas much deeper.

big and spicy on the tongue. a bit heavy as well. nose was lovely and lent itself to a much more elegant palate. quite deceptive, and will be interesting to follow over the years.

2010 Lone Madrone The Will Will's Hills

Paso Robles Red Blend more

6/21/2015 - Sauvyfan Likes this wine: 90 points

an amalgamation of mixed black fruit compote and heat on the nose. Very aggressive. A little gloppy on the tongue, but completely immersed with dense fruit. Very little heat on the tongue. Cleans up rather nicely, with a good dose of drying tannin on the finish.

this was a beauty upon pnp. Very delicate, red fruit driven. The more air it got, the fatter it got. More spice, black tea, darker fruit. By night 2, it was heavy on the tongue for Pinot. Certainly well made, but not my style.

decanted four hours. Rebottled and drank three hours later. Just beginning to open up. Heat on nose but no indication on the tongue. Multiple layers to this beauty.

this was the best Bedrock SB in years. When you opened the bottle, you could smell the tropical fruit from across the room. Perfect acidity cleans up this well rounded, lengthy effort.

clearly the best champagne I've ever had, given my limited experience with the bubble. tons of yeasty goodness, and layers upon layers of secondary flavors. (12th wedding anniversary)

2012 Bedrock Wine Co. Syrah Alder Springs Vineyard

Mendocino County more

6/12/2015 - Sauvyfan Likes this wine: 94 points

the nose lacks somewhat on this wine, but from a pure palate measure, it is one of the finest Bedrock's I've had. And I've had a lot! My bad, for not giving this the respect it deserved by decanting. The mouthfeel on this is ridiculous. Tremendously supple grip from the tannin. Blackberry tea, leather, touch of tobacco. Finish may still be with me when I wake up tomorrow. Truly amazing. With a proper decant, this could reach upper 90's.

really rounded out on night two. Suggest several hours decant. Lost of earthy notes, creosote, mushroom, graphite, black fruits. Old world indeed.
