    November 10, 2019 - Black fruit, full bodied with slightly dusty tannin and medium acid. More fruit than earth, with a meaty streak. Although decanted, it didn't hit its high until late into the evening. Definitely delicious now, though plan on a 3+ hour decant.

    October 27, 2019 - This wine was a puzzlement for me. Decanted for 3 hours. It had flavors of roasted meat and some earth, but I did not get a clear sense of the fruit. Other CTers have suggested it is more in an old world style, Quite possibly. It was not what I have come to expect from Bedrock wines. The best word I could come up with to describe it was "austere."

    February 20, 2019 - Dark fruit, black licorice, black pepper, a touch meaty, full tannins/medium acid. A bold wine that does the vineyard well and should age for years to come.
