    December 20, 2020 - Very perfumed wine that just gets more expressive with air. Rainier cherries, citrus, garrigue, and some savory/meaty notes. Much the same on the palate. Another great Bedrock with excellent balance and as with most of my favorites from them, simultaneously light bodied yet dense.

    July 18, 2020 - Light and pretty for a Zin, this has a very perfumed nose of black cherries, candied orange peel, and baking spice. Palate is smooth, with moderate acidity and body that feels much lighter than its 14.4% ABV would suggest. Fabulous with BBQ ribs, will definitely buy again!

    July 15, 2020 - Popped and decanted for two hours, re-bottled and enjoyed over 2.5 hours. Moderately assertive nose of black fruit, taste is loaded with candied black cherries, currant, ripe plum, some cinnamon. Grippy finish that eased up slightly. Highlight flavors were mostly there, just a little flabby to say it had the structure of a top-notch wine. More of a soft texture than a very layered one.

    April 26, 2020 - Evolving nicely since my last bottle 3 years ago, raspberry fruit with loads of spice, bramble, and good persistence. Very good.

    March 16, 2020 - Candied black cherry and spice, other notes here seem very accurate. Good freshnesss, little tannin. A bit sweet for my taste but good personality. Drink now - 2025
