Bedrock Wine Co.

Esola Vineyard Zinfandel

Ya know, not many quality vineyards are producing Zins any longer, but there does seem to be a movement back to them. Once again, thanks to my friends on Delectable for introducing me to Bedrock. 2016, 14.4 ABV. Lovely pepper and leather and minerals, along with blackberry and other dried dark fruits. Touch of tannin, appreciated. Won't knock your socks of, but a really nice wine overall, for a relaxing night with friends and pork chops. 9.2. β€” 6 days ago

Absolutely magical stuff. Meat, stone, blueberry, and nice acidity considering it was likely a larger wine in it's youth. β€” 15 days ago

Clos Saron

Out of the Blue Cinsault Blend

Medium minus garnet and slightly turbid. Fresh aroma of raspberry, blackberry, hibiscus; stemmy, note of carbonic. Light body (feels lighter than 13.4%), high acid, medium minus powdery tannin. Lingering slightly wild finish. β€” 6 days ago

Valdigue Nouveau

Really enjoyed this one. A lot less bubblegum fruit than the previous year but the soda-like element that others have commented on is definitely there. β€” a month ago

The Withers Winery

Mr. Burgess Sierra Foothills Red Rhone Blend 2015

To me this is the most RhΓ΄ne-like in style of the Withers line-up. Earthier tones of juniper berries and black pepper. Nice, mouth filling core of blackberry fruit and ripe tannins. β€” 17 days ago

Shake Ridge Ranch Suzuri Series Red Rhone Blend 2011

First time trying a wine from this winery.
And it won't be the last time! Definitely will be searching out some of their other wines.
Pnp. Dried strawberries, red currants, and black cherry on the palate. Very good.

Old Vine Sierra Foothills Zinfandel 2014

Very nice red fruits and black cherry notes, round fruitiness is nicely balanced with the acidity. Goes well with planked salmon. Nice tasting room too! β€” 17 days ago
