"Evangelho Heritage" 2014

Bedrock Wine Co.

"Many of you have heard us wax rhapsodic about Evangelho Vineyard and its ancient vines, own-rooted in beach sand on the banks of the Delta. Having made this vineyard for four years now, I am amazed by the unflappable consistency of the vineyard. Though it might be a shade darker or lighter in any given vintage, whenever we taste through the wines blind in the cellar, Evangelho screams out. For me it is the contrast between the bright acid and low pH of well-farmed CoCo fruit along with the fine tannin profile from the sand that separates it from most of our other vineyards that are derived from coarser, more volcanic soil. I love this 2014, a field-blend of Zinfandel, Carignane, Mataro, Palomino, Alicante Bouschet, and Mission. As always, decant well if drinking in the near term!” (Morgan Twain-Peterson)

Reviews

  • "92 points. The 2014 Evangelho Heritage Wine is dark, fleshy and supple. Dark cherry, mint, pomegranate, blood orange, smoke, licorice, lavender and mint are some of the many nuances that open up in the glass. This site is planted with a field blend of Zinfandel, Carignane, Mataro, Palomino, Alicante Bouschet and Mission. More importantly, it is one of the most distinctive and polished wines in the range."
