Riva Ranch Heritage Block Chardonnay 2021

I’m getting citrus and fruity notes from this one. I am surprised I like this. It has a light body and is easy to drink. Yay — 14 days ago

Nervo Ranch Heritage Alexander Valley Red Blend 2021

Yes I know this is way too early but I really wanted to see where this was. From a very old “mixed black” vineyard on a hill of decomposing slate loam. With an hour of air it’s showing deep, low-toned berry fruit, cracked stones, and a little warm gravel. Structured and very old world on the palate, it’s got a youthful wall of tannin guarding it right now, but there’s nice flavor density underneath and no hint of jamminess or residual sugar. Stow it for 3-5 years at least. But it will be really good. 9.2+ — 7 months ago

Bloodstone Shiraz 2013

Although it’s rated very dry, it has a very delightful sweetness to its strong taste. Awesome Shiraz. — 2 years ago


Heritage Sites Napa Valley Red Wine 2002

Really good! Very similar to a high quality, mature Bordeaux. 30+ minute decant but fades fairly quick so probably doesn’t need it. See previous notes. — 3 months ago

Heritage Petite Sirah 2006

My last bottle of this vintage and I was concerned that it might be corked. But to my pleasant surprise it was very nice for a 17 year old Petite Sirah. A little smoky at first but then it opened up and was delicious. Retained primary fruit on the pallet but not on the nose. Very light tannins with small amounts of sediment in the glass but quite a bit on the bottle neck. Paired perfectly with rotisserie lamb. — 8 months ago

Heritage Clones Petite Sirah 2004

Prob didn’t need to have this btl at the end of the night, but it had a great, sweet richness. Lots of vanilla bean, soft chocolate finesse. What a treat - especially after having a 2017 Imposter early in the nite! Thx Jeff Cohn. — 3 years ago

Papera Ranch Heritage Russian River Valley Red Blend 2014

Never know what I’m going to get when I open a Bedrock. This one seems to be okay with some blackberries, licorice, brambles and such, not overly complex but good. Opened and decanted about an hour before dinner and seemed to be the same from start to about 3 hours later. — 4 months ago

Pagani Ranch Heritage Sonoma Valley Red Blend 2019


Dark ruby with bold, intense juicy dark cherries, blackberries, plums, spice and oak on the nose. Medium body and medium tannins that give room to a nice acidity. Cherry pie, dark berry jam, tobacco, bayleaf and clove on the palate lead to a beautiful medium long finish with notes of caramel. Beautiful wine with complex notes that keeps evolving as it decants. — 2 years ago
