    August 17, 2019 - 2nd bottle of the night, consumed with Mark.
    Spice, smooth but firm tannins, ample fruit yet balanced.

    August 4, 2019 - Decanted for one hour. Aromatic nose of black raspberry, blueberry, black licorice and spice. Black and blue fruit, spice, bramble and fine tannins on the palate. Very long finish with good depth. Rich and full bodied. Served with smoked baby back ribs.

    December 7, 2018 - Really nice showing - juicy, mineral-driven bright red fruit profile with plenty of acidity to keep this lively and refreshing. Seems to be drinking well - probably polish off my last bottle over Christmas. My kind of Zin.

    August 21, 2018 - Awesome and in a good spot now. While remaining medium-bodied, this has an epic darkness, even a tarry edge, which echoes Carlisle syrahs I’ve been enjoying young recently. At the same time, I get the telltale orange oil signature from bedrock vineyard, very nice acidity and the brightness of zin fruit. All at once a wine with both a sense of place and maker. Really fun and enjoyable.
