From the producer: In 2020, we were thrilled to be offered an additional small amount of fruit from an equally old (1880s-planted) block of fruit at this venerable ranch. In contrast to Block 32, which faces west, Block 25 is at higher elevation and faces north—something very rare at Monte Rosso. The blend of the two is a wine that has even more perfume and racy mountain fruit than previous iterations, showing all the pepper, blood orange, and raspberry typical of the site. Composed primarily of Zinfandel, there is a small amount of interplanted Alicante Bouschet, Grand Noir, and a single, beautiful Tempranillo vine. As always, a favorite of the vintage from one of the grand dames of Zinfandel sites in the world.

Embracing the heritage of ancient vineyards and ensuring they continue to prosper is the most noble duty of today's California vigneron. Bedrock Wine Co. has used this concept as the foundation of their winery, farming vineyards themselves and continuing to support other growers who work with historic sites. There's no winery in the state that sees such a diverse range of revered vineyards like the guys at Bedrock. The story of place is undoubtedly where it all starts, but the quality of wines from this duo represent the very best that California old vines have to offer.

The duo behind Bedrock are Morgan Twain-Peterson and Chris Cottrell. Morgan grew up working alongside his father, Joel Peterson in the vineyard and cellars of the family winery, Ravenswood. A child prodigy, he began making his own wine, Vino Bambino, at age five and, starting with the 1986 vintage, it was poured at top restaurants in New York City. In 2007, Morgan founded Bedrock Wine Co. using a converted chicken coop on the outskirts of Sonoma.

Morgan met Chris in NYC at the small boutique wine shop they worked at on the Upper East Side. A strong friendship grew, and after a decade selling fine wine in NYC and many harvests with Morgan he received a call from his buddy telling him it was time the two made wine together.

The vineyards they use are not the only “old-school” thing about Bedrock: whole cluster fermentation, native yeast and minimal intervention are harnessed to highlight the complexity of these ancient sites. The resulting wines are powerful and concentrated yet balanced and elegant; delicious young but capable of developing over the decades.
