  • 2015 Bedrock Wine Co. Heritage Wine Gibson Ranch

    The release notes from Bedrock about this wine say "From the oldest plantings in McDowell Valley (1880s) this is a unique field blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Peloursin, Trousseau Noir, and Grenache that I have seen nowhere else in California." It's clearly a very well-made wine, and an interesting one. As you can see, it's not really a syrah, even though that's first on the list. I note some heaviness that is not syrah or grenache. It might come from the petite or perhaps from the peloursin or trousseau noir, which I have not tasted individually. As a matter of personal taste, this is not my favorite only because of the heaviness. This might explain why some people love it and others are really not so sure. Doubtless, it's very high quality. The varietal blend might not be for everyone.

  • 2014 Bedrock Wine Co. Syrah Griffin's Lair

    Even better than in 2020. Really good. At or near its peak. Very well integrated, excellent balance. Tannins still evident, in a good way; expect tannins to soften a bit more over next few years. Improves greatly within 30 minutes of decanting. Exemplary of why Bedrock is such a great winery.

  • 2016 Bodegas Mas Alta Priorat Black Slate La Vilella Alta

    After a couple of days of air, this is really nice indeed! Intriguing, pleasant, no harshness, not too anything. Well balanced — a treat.
    Right after decanting, it had some unresolved sharpness and the fruit tasted quite young. Apparently it was too reductive and needed some oxidation to soften and blend, which it did. After getting sufficient air, it merits the good reviews. And quite a QPR, at around $20! Much better than countless wines that cost much more, have good reviews and have enough age
