WTN: Bedrock Syrah NorthCoast '11...(short/boring)

by TomHill » Wed Apr 17, 2013 1:50 pm

Tried this last night after a total fail on a Tardieu CdR:
1. BedrockWineCo Syrah NorthCoast (14.0%; 35%-50% whole cluster; 14 brls; www.BedrockWineCo.com) 2011: Very dark color; very strong blackberry/Syrah quite spicy/peppery/cold-climate Syrah some Rhonish/smokey/roasted/licorice rather complex nose; rather tart/lean light blackberry/Syrah fairly peppery/cold-climate Syrah bit hard/tannic/bitey some roasted/Rhonish flavor; very long roasted/Rhonish/peppery/cold-climate Syrah/earthy some blackberry/Syrah finish w/ modest hard/bitey tannins; the acidity suggests a Texier StJoseph w/o the smokey character; needs several yrs to smooth out; a very interesting Rhonish Syrah at a stupid/silly price. $21.00

And a wee BloodyPulpit:
1. It's the ole Bedrock lament..."I shoulda bought more". It would have been better if Morgan had labeled it "Cote-Rotie" and then charged $24. Nuthin' wrong w/ that I think.

Thank you..I thought that was the case and yes I did include a bunch of these in my Bedrock order that arrived a few weeks ago..Also loaded up on their SB and Rose which have become annual no-brainers for me

>> stupid/silly price. $21.00
Being a buyer and consumer, not a seller, I can't see anything except WOWZA at a price like that for nice Syrah.
