Bedrock Zinfandel Monte Rosso 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Savory and spicy on the nose with a lovely blend of nutty undertones and lovely violet and slightly medicinal top notes to the core of dusty blackberry and blackcurrant fruit. Soft and easy going on entry, this is rather broad and low in the mouth. There’s great depth and purity to the black fruit here, and this shows a more stoic, slightly rustic side of Zinfandel, gaining a little herbal nuance with air. A bit tight and promising, this shows off some fine-grained tannins on the fairly long finish. In a way a bit subtle and subdued, this should blossom with another year in the bottle, and drink well through 2019. The more I sit with this the more it reveals and the more impressed with it I become. Be patient with this one. 92 points

Fruit from only the most excellent vineyard sites is hand pitch-forked into the destemmer, fermented in open top redwood and stainless vats using only native yeasts, and are manually basket pressed by winemaker Morgan Twain-Peterson into the sexiest oak from the coldest French forests.
