Community Tasting Notes 37

July 4, 2014 - Decanted for an hour. Thick and chewy with dark fruit and secondary complexity. Compared against the 2011 which was less complex but exhibited nice red fruit.

May 16, 2014 - Balanced and complex. A more earthy Syrah with dark fruits/tar/clove/pepper. Nice tannins/acidity. Right inline with what a cool climate Syrah should be. Opens after about 45 minutes. Some evidence of secondary flavor notes creeping in. Could probably cellar for years yet.

May 9, 2014 - We popped and poured. Slightly tart at beginning but opened up beautifully. Great Syrah nose.
September 2, 2013 - My favorite Bedrock to-date--too bad this was my only bottle. Rich and complex, yet balanced. This seemed to show a lot more breadth in flavors and was a lot more accessible than some of MTP's newer releases (obviously age has some impact as well). Will be interesting to taste some of the newer ones at 5 years of age and see how they stack up.
September 2, 2013 - Perhaps my bottle was flawed, but my notes can barely get past the sour cherry. When the wife asks for a new bottle, you know it's just not good.1 person found this helpful Comments (1)
