Bedrock Wine Co.

Evangelho Vineyard Heritage Red Blend 2019

What can I say? Pleasure in a glass. I just really love me my Bedrock Evangelho and this vintage in particular. Intoxicating aromas of cinnamon, cigar box, sweet berry fruit and dried thyme/rosemary/mint. Full bodied and ripe, but really fine, silty (as opposed to silky) tannins give it structure and there is ample acid there providing a punchy freshness. Most surprisingly of all, is this wine’s deceptively light touch. I’m tempted to polish off the bottle in one sitting, but at 14.5% abv that would be a bad idea. Pair with Snoop’s half time show performance (we just won’t tell him that this puts his 19 Crimes to shame) Prior notes apply. — 6 months ago

Tamayo Family Vineyards

Cana Red Blend 2007

Dark ruby hue with high saturation. Aromas and flavors of balsamic, blackberry, black cherry, coffee, mocha, oak, sage, smoke, toast, tomato, and vanilla. Full body; heavy, firm tannins; and medium-high acidity. Robust, deep, and complex (especially after 13 years in the bottle). Rounds out as it opens up. An exemplary, bold California red blend made of 8 different varietals. — 2 years ago
