• Bedrock 2017 Bien Nacido Syrah

From the famed X block, this is a Syrah on steroids and performing well now. The nose shows violets, cracked black pepper, sweet cherry, and a hit of blackberry liquor. The palate is mid weight with zippy acid and an excellent mix of violets, cherries, blackberry liquor and crushed rocks. Young and Delish  D&M Tasting Notes

X-Block Santa Maria Valley. I will note that this is a bit of a stylistic outlier for us in that it is 12.4% finished alcohol and a more lacey, crunchy, aromatically ethereal wine than our north coast sites give us. This will age nicely but can also be enjoyed with a decant in the nearer term. Get it! Drink 2019-2030.” Morgan Twain-Peterson, Wine Maker

"What?! Yeah, we are still pretty gobsmacked we got this fruit in 2017 too. For those who don’t know this legendary Syrah site here is the down low: this was originally planted to Riesling on its own roots in 1973 and then grafted over to Syrah in 1987. Over the years, it has gone to at the legendary Bob Lindquist of Qupe, Bonny Doon, and others, including our friend Sashi Moorman at Piedrassi who was responsible for us getting the fruit in 2017. When I got a call that he had a few more tons than expected, I immediately sent down a reefer truck to get it. Even though the fruit was only in the mid-22s sugar, it was some of the ripest fruit I tasted all year. We broke it down into several 1-ton oak fermenters with varying percentages of whole-cluster between 0-100%, and elevage was done in 500l used Stockinger barrels. You know what? They were all f-in great and the final wine is a blend of all the lots. The best news of all is that we will start receiving this fruit yearly.  Morgan Twain-Peterson
