Bedrock Monticello Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon

While Bedrock is synonymous with Zinfandel and Zinfandel Blends, they do dabble in Cabernet as well. The 2017 Bedrock Monticello Old Vine Cabernet is a great look at what the dynamic wine making duo of Morgan Twain Peterson and Chris Cottrell can do with Cabernet. Even better we have it at the best price in the country by $15!

Great bottle - drinking perfect right now!

2017 Bedrock Monticello Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon...$59.99
From vines planted in the 1960s at 2000' elevation at the top of Nun’s Canyon on the northern edge of the Moon Mountain District AVA, this is fast becoming one of the best-known sites for Cabernet in California. We feel very fortunate to share this incredible block with the likes of Turley, Arnot Roberts, DuMOL and others. The 2017 iteration of this wine is the most immediately generous and open of the vintages we have made. Classic black currant, anise and pepper are front and center here with classic mountain structure holding it all together. Though this is certainly as candidate for cellaring, it could also be enjoyed with a good decanting early in its life to enjoy it in its “baby-fat” stage.
