Winery Notes:

The glorious sands of Evangelho Vineyard created one of the more elegant and perfumed examples of the Evangelho we have made. A blend of 1890s planted Zinfandel, Mourvèdre/Mataro, Carignan, Alicante, Palomino, and more, the 2022 Evangelho was fermented in open-top tank and aged predominately in 600-gallon foudre and puncheons. As we see more and more vineyards in the area getting torn out due to the steady march of suburban sprawl, we feel even more protective of this true Grand Cru of California— a place where ultra-rare own-rooted vines plunge into 40-foot banks of sand along the breezy delta of the Sacramento River and San Pablo Bay. In 2022, the Zinfandel was juicy and delicious but perhaps not as serious as some years; however, the Mourvèdre/Mataro was all sorts of serious and the Carignan about as dense as we have ever seen it. The combination of the three sections of the vineyard has made for a wonderful version of this wine and also serves as a good reminder of why Zinfandel, Mourvèdre, and Carignan have been the Holy Trinity in this part of California for over a century— a rare throuple with lasting power.

Deeply structured yet polished and lively, with rich black raspberry and cherry flavors that take on savory anise, cracked pepper and briar accents as this gains structure toward medium-grained tannins. Zinfandel, Mataro, Carignan, Alicante and Palomino. Drink now through 2034. 750 cases made.
