Bedrock Wine Co. Monte Rosso Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Sonoma County|
|Brand||Bedrock Wine Co.|
Yep, we cannot believe it, but after a sad hiatus from the vineyard the previous vintage, in 2018 we got to make both Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon from this famed site. Our Cabernet block is located next to the oldest remaining Cabernet in the country (planted 1937) on some of the most iron-rich soils on the whole property. Planted in the early 90s on a quadrilateral cordon, the block produced an absolutely classic mountain Cabernet in 2018. Like most wines from Monte Rosso, the wine is highly perfumed with the archetypal citrus-tinged aromatics of the site-in this case overlaid on a core of weighty Cabernet fruit. We only got a few tons of this fruit, so unfortunately there is not much of this red-dirt queen to go around.
