Evangelho Heritage Wine Contra Costa County 2012
Brand Bedrock Wine Company
This product is unavailable
After falling in love with the fragrant and forward 2011 wine, and with the quirky and strangely alluring sands of Contra Costa County, we decided that Evangelho Vineyard deserved a place in the permanent stable of Bedrock Wine Co.
The 2012 is a worthy successor to the 2011. Found from the well-tended, own-rooted vines planted in the 1890's in Frankie's field o'goodness. Raised in a combination of smaller French oak barrels and a 600 gallon foudre the wine possesses crunchy red fruits of the Carignane, the sappiness of fresh Zinfandel, and the feral and exotic spice and earth of the terrestrial Mourvedre. Drink 2014-2020
Grapes: roughly 40% Carignane, 38% Mourvedre, with the remainder Zinfandel, Palomino, Alicante, and Mission
