Decanted for 3+ hours. There is so much going on with this wine. Fruit forward and plush in the attack. Doug Wilder's description of chocolate blackberry is dead on. It evolves into primarily blue fruit with layers of smoke and a little tar all wrapped in floral. Did not get the coffee influence that was prominent in other bottles. I opened this a little earlier than I expected to in order to serve at a fellow Bedrock lover's retirement celebration. I hope to hold my last bottle for 5+ years to see the next phase of this wine's evolution.
Bedrock does the fruity, voluptuous stanky so good Syrah as well as anyone, with enough bone marrow and mulberry lift to keep it together on the back end, and at a good price, too. Really hard not to like as an after-dinner card-playing segue into chocolate.
