    July 27, 2014 - Delicious, nervy wine with notes of raspberry liqueur, cranberry, and just a tiny touch of oak. I love it. Not as intense or concentrated as the 2012 Bedrock Bedrock Heritage, which is my only reference point. But a thing of beauty. This is a reminder to me -- and to you -- that I should never buy less than my full allocation of any of the Bedrock Heritage wines.

    June 19, 2014 - This is my idea of a great, unique California wine - a Zin dominated blend with a nuanced nose, some blueberry/raspberry notes (but not a jammy wine), with some herbal notes and very lighthanded oak. Moderate tannins means it's fine to drink now but I'll sit for another year or two.

    May 3, 2014 - Fantastic pairing wife beef tongue soft tacos. I think it could benefit from another year in bottle to really stand out. Great stuff.

    April 9, 2014 - Wow! This wine, for me, is a dramatic example of why I need to let my Bedrock reds rest in the cellar longer; what a difference a year made. I popped this and left it slow decant for about two hours. At first the wine had an absolutely beguiling light perfume to it, and was full of red fruits and exotic spices. Over the course of the evening it darkened considerably. The nose was full of dark fruits, meat, and brambles, while it tasted of dark fruits, blueberries, and cherries. On the back of the tongue I could detect a touch of raisin, which I often associate with Zin. The dark flavors were balanced by nice acidity. Wish I had a bunch more of these, I bet it only gets better!
