A truly incredible site, which are responsible or producing truly incredible wines. 2,000 feet in elevation, above the Bedrock vineyard is magical vineyard, planted in the 1980's on bright-red, iron-rich soils, which imprint their signature, no matter the variety harvested. This vintage is a blend of two parcels, one north facing, that infuse the wine with an electric current of vivacity to what is already a heady, enveloping wine that I just could not get enough of.
"...is a standout. Readers who want to understand why Monte Rosso is such a special site will find that here. Soaring aromatics, strikingly pure fruit and refined tannins are all signatures of a special place and a special wine. Red-fleshed fruit, blood orange, mint, spice and lifted floral overtones grace this racy, flamboyant Zinfandel-based wine. Dollops of Alicante Bouschet, Grand Noir and Tempranillo round out the field blend. 94 points" -- Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
