Vineyard: Monte Rosso Vineyard is a beautiful old vine site on the Sonoma side of Mt Veeder. It is a big vineyard with 350 acres planted. The block that Morgan Twain-Peterson has for Bedrock by coincidence had also been used by Joel Peterson for Ravenswood back in the 70's and 80's. They refer to it affectionately as the Peterson block.
Orientation: West facing slope on the Sonoma side of Mt Veeder
Soil: Iron rich volcanic soils
Viticulture: Head trained, own-rooted vines
Vinification: Native yeast fermentation in larger format oak
Aging: Aged for 12 months in 20% new French oak
Production: 400 cases
Notes: Powerful, with soaring aromatics and the signature citrus blossom and orange oil imparted by the deep red soils draped slinkily over the western shoulder of Mt. Veeder. This wine can be drunk now with serious decanting but should age easily for a decade or more. Easily the best Monte Rosso Bedrock has made and carries all the hallmarks of the grand cru site
