From understandably one of the most famous vineyards in California, this wine comes from Bedrock's phenomenal block planted in 1886 on the midslope of the vineyard. Perfumed, dense, and structured, this wine promises to provide deliciousness and satisfaction for years to come.
The Wine Advocate 95 - One of the great, iconic vineyards of Northern California is the Monte Rosso site owned by the Gallos. The 2015 Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard is amazing. Peterson was saying that it comes from a steep westward-facing vineyard planted mostly with Zinfandel, but also includes tiny quantities of Alicante Bouschet and Grand Noir. Dark, complex, powerful and muscular with briary blackberry and black raspberry fruit, savory roasted herbs, steak tartare, pepper and forest floor, this is a wine of great intensity, richness and length. This is a beauty to drink over the next 10-15+ years.
Wine Spectator 94 - A wine of richness and torque, offering expressive blackberry, orange zest and tar aromas and complex flavors of black raspberry, toasty cinnamon and sage, with licorice accents. The tannins have weight but are ripe and polished. Drink now through 2025. 300 cases made.
