Full bodied, almost waxy/viscous texture. Good amount of tannins. Tons of red fruits. I liked but did not love this today, though I think it has enough structure to shed some of the primary fruit and get really interesting in 5-10 years.
Had half the bottle last night sealed it in the fridge to try today. Dark purple garnet dense but not saturated with lilac rim. Earthy blackberry (zin) with licorice herbs and raspberrys on the nose. Medium weight with polished tannins with nice grip on the finish. Red and black fruits with a savoury amaro note. Big flavours with an elegant balance and lots of complexity. Lingering amaro finish. Delicious on its own and with food
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...
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.
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.
