Taken to Scratch for happy hour and poured around the table before I tried it and realized it was corked. There was so much fruit in the original wine that it remained drinkable, I'd give it an 70 and the rest of the table maybe an 80-85 if they thought in those terms. Would have been another extroverted Syrah masterpiece from Bedrock but became just an alcoholic beverage.
blue and deep red berry notes on nose as well as mulberry. The taste is very full but an equal amount of acidity as well as fine tannins to keep this in check. Lingering smoky bacon and earth makes this even more compelling. Some licorice and anise in there as well. well made. This note is from 2nd day. 1st day it didn't show any of these notes. give this air or a decant
Splash decant ... Still really loving this one, which is drinking perfectly now. Less cloudy than my last bottle a year ago, and with less sediment than I expected based on previous experience. Deep, dark purple. Nose of berry and violets. At first sip, rich and creamy, with blackberry and chocolate. It deepens with a pop of acid, intact tannins, spice and earth. Lots going on and very well balanced. A bigger Bedrock Syrah amongst their offerings, but really awesomely done.
This had an incredible character to it... great sense of vineyard, a chewy vegetal/mineral balance, and a hint of eucalyptus. I would wait about 3-5 more years and let it continue to evolve... tremendous fruit in it!
Drank this courtesy of PSUSteve. Open for 24 hours but with vacuvin. Black purple. Great nose of fresh-brewed coffee. Copious black fruit, smoke, pepper, dark chocolate, and coffee. The finish went on for minutes. I'm pretty sure I heard the angels sing.
