Bedrock Syrah North Coast 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

89 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): Bedrock's 2016 Syrah North Coast is soft, fruity and delicious, with attractive floral overtones and a good bit of nuance. In so many vintages, the North Coast Syrah punches above its weight. The 2016 doesn't quite do that, but it offers a good bit of nuance and personality. Vineyard sites are Hudson, Weill, Gibson Ranch and Shake Ridge. The 40% whole clusters add considerable aromatic nuance. Drink: 2018-2024. (Jan 2018)

Bedrock Wine Co.:
Bedrock is an itsy-bitsy winery making wine in a converted chicken coop. Fruit from only the most excellent vineyard sites is hand pitch-forked into the destemmer, fermented in open top redwood and stainless vats using only native yeasts, and are manually basket pressed by winemaker Morgan Twain-Peterson into the sexiest oak from the coldest French forests.

Very much a cherry nose. Fairly fruity—cherries, berries, stone fruit--on entry to the palate, but not over the top. Very tame tannin. Good refreshing acid. Would go good with grilled/roasted poultry, or, maybe a pork chop with some sort of fruit salsa.

Bright purple. Red and dark berry liqueur, potpourri and fruitcake scents show good clarity and lift. Juicy, spice-accented blackberry and blueberry flavors pick up notes of cracked pepper and olive with air, along with a touch of smokiness. Finishes lush and spicy, with gentle tannins coming in late. This was vinified with a good percentage of whole clusters.

The 2012 Syrah North Coast is a multi-appellation blend from five separate vineyards that utilized 40% stems and 15% new French oak. It is a delicious, sexy, up-front Syrah meant for near-term consumption. With impressive levels of blackberry and acacia flower notes intermixed with licorice and charcoal, this wine should drink well for 5–7 years.

The 2011 Syrah is drop-dead gorgeous. Black olives, pepper, spices, cedar, tobacco and incense all emerge from this exotic, intensely perfumed wine. Bedrock’s 2011 Syrah is a stunning wine for the money. At $21 a bottle, it offers tons of varietal character and plenty of personality. Wow! The 2011 includes declassified fruit from Alder Springs, Hudson T Griffins Lair and a touch of Viognier from Steiner Ranch. It all adds up to an absolutely beautiful wine at a very friendly price. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2018.

Dark purple. Vibrant, spice-accented dark berry aromas show very good clarity and focus. Juicy, penetrating blackberry and bitter cherry flavors gain flesh with air and pick up a suave floral pastille nuance. Sweet and seamless on a finish that features soft tannins and a zesty, peppery kick. This wine delivers superb value.
