A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. Fiano: This was a rather strange wine that may just be in a dumb stage. It was pretty rich/lush/textured but just didn't have much flavor. Not vapid/eviscerated...but the flavor was just not there. I suspect that it needs a yr or two & will put on weight & develop more aromatics & flavor.

Evangelho is consistently my favorite Bedrock. 2019 will get opened soon.
