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.

Stunning Zin. Fresh, vibrant and packed with loamy minerals, silky tannins and sweet fruit flavors. Hard to resist now, but will improve with age.

I plead guilty to zinfanticide of this @bedrockwineco Monte Rosso... I sentence its twin bottle to 5-10 years of cellar confinement...

Delicious! Smooth and lighter than expected. Brambly fruit, juicy berries, sweet oak, pepper, dusty.

Still a baby and very tight, but it's obvious an explosion of dark fruit and earth will reward with some patience.

More acidic, complex and sophisticated than the Carlisle 2012 from the same vineyard we tried next to it. Will only improve with a few years time.
