    January 15, 2015 - Purposely not scoring this. REALLY interesting bottle - thought it was borderline corked on day 1. Let it sit. Day 2 started to come around. Let it sit. Day 3 it was really tasty, and wished I'd left more for Day 3. Not sure what to make of all that...someone more wine savvy than I please jump in and tell people when to drink this wine...

    December 22, 2014 - I enjoyed this quite a bit, as did the rest of the table. Very fruit-forward wine, primarily red-fruited, but not simple. Strawberry, cranberry, cherry, and herbs on the nose. Somewhat soft and plush, with plenty of acidity and a crunchy cranberry mid-palate. Struck me as zin-like in the attack, and Beaujolais-like in the mid palate and finish. Incredibly well-balanced. While this is a rich wine, it hid the alcohol quite well (I would not have guessed that it was over 14%). Nice.

    December 20, 2014 - This was my first Bedrock, while I liked it more than my wife it is probably nothing I'd buy again. Aromas were nice, an evolving mix of red and dark berries, lavender, vanilla and dried herbs. The palate was lightish medium body, but at the same time more lush than I expected, featuring red berries, raisin, herbs. Gentle tannins and a lively acidic cut keep it from being too jammy. Will let my other bottle sit for awhile and see how another year of so treats it.

    December 16, 2014 - This has improved a great deal since my last bottle. better integrated, softer, very pretty both above and in the glass.

    December 13, 2014 - First taste 60 minutes after opening. This is a dark red wine. It's elegant, smooth, and easy to drink. Can't complain. Drank with family at our Hanukkah party. Dinner was flanken (pot roast).
