    September 18, 2021 - Had this along with a Carlisle 2018 Papera, so interesting to see the style difference.

    Vs a fairly polished Carlisle, this one came off admire rustic and old school. Purple colored and fairly dark, nose was dusty, menthol, and wild dark fruits. On the palate this wine is very bramble and wild dark fruited, has a dark spicy profile, blackberry, graphite and a touch of smoke. Still pretty tannic and feels not quite opened up, though med-high acidity keeps this fairly drinkable. I drank this way too you, but give it 3-4 years and it will be quite nice.

    Rated the same as the Carlisle, but ultimately think this will be the better wine.

    June 2, 2020 - My first Bedrock purchase in about 4 years and was interested to see how the style has changed as I've heard there's been a shift. The first thing to strike me is that this is delicious, like really delicious. 97 as per AG? I dunno, but it's very good. The acid is much higher than I remember on older Bedrock, and the mouthfeel is not nearly as thick/glycerine-ish as Bedrocks circa 2010-2013 ish. On night 2 the acid is even more prominent. It does not really have the brambly spicy zin thing going on, I'm not quite sure what I'd guess it as blind. Also not sure exactly how it will change with age as it's so damn drinkable now.
