A truly stunning Zinfandel. Juicy, fleshy blackberry and blueberry fruit. Lovely purple flower and wild herb aromas, licorice, black pepper and mint flavors. Very lively on the palate with wonderful acidity and impressive freshness. Oak is beautifully integrated and tannins are very elegant yet firm. The complexity and length of the finish are phenomenal. One of the finest and most memorable Zinfandel I’ve had in a long time.

The 2016 Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard is utterly sublime. Lifted, aromatically precise and nuanced, the 2016 Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard is fabulous. Rose petal, blood orange, cranberry and raspberry notes give the Monte Rosso striking aromatic presence and brightness. Unfortunately, Bedrock, like all the other wineries that purchased grapes at Monte Rosso, no longer have access to the fruit off this historic ranch. Morgan Peterson and Chris Cottrell certainly chose a strong vintage as their last. The 2016 is sublime. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, April 2018)

Black cherry, dried herbs, chewy tannins. Powerful intense wine. Will definitely hold other one for a little bit.

Extremely structured, reminiscent of a Cabernet. Went great with ribeye. Very, very good. Should hold for years.

Sleek and concentrated, complex and juicy. And, happily, built to last a few years or more. This is a nuanced wine that shows a deft hand.

One of the most special sites in California - really a thrill to taste this within eyesight of the vineyard

What’s it gonna take to get @delectablewine to update their AVA listings. I am losing faith. On a side note, this Zin is excellent. Spicy, tense Zin.

Crisp Zinfandel. Such a treat. Pepper and snap. Reminds me of Catalina Zinfandel from Rusack Vineyards.
