Absolutely. I probably spend the $1K just on MR thru Bedrock and Baile.

Re: What Bedrock wine are you drinking tonight?

A '14 Weill-A-Way.
Decanted for 60 minutes before anxiety took over. Marvelous nose of blackberries with hint of vanilla without the bacon fat usually found in this grape.
Good acidity, a bit tamer than the normal SC syrah. Glad I have still have 2 bottles left.
