  • "As always, the 2019 is a blend of the three dominant field-blended varieties at the vineyard—Zinfandel, Mataro and Carignan—though it also contains bits and bobs of Alicante Bouschet, Grand Noir, Mission, Palomino and even a single, ancient Clairette Blanche vine (definitely had to go to the DNA to ID that one!). Mataro is particularly expressive this year, and its brawny yet brainy presence makes itself felt behind the always lusciously luculent Zinfandel and Carignan. One of the best wines of the year."  Notes from the winemaker

      "Coming from own-rooted vines planted in the 1890s in sandy soils, the 2019 Evangelho Vineyard Heritage has a beautiful, sappy, medium-bodied style to go with lots of darker red berry and almost blue styled fruits, grippy yet ripe tannins, good purity, and a clean, elegant mouthfeel. It benefits from air, and while I don't know the blend, it reminds me of a top-quality Carignan from the Languedoc."  Jeb Dunnuck
