A beautiful wine from 130+ year old, own-rooted vines in Antioch and the Sacramento Delta. Comprised of roughly 3/5th Zinfandel, 1/3rd Mataro and the rest a field blend of “mixed blacks.” (The wine is a field blend/co-ferment, matter of fact.) Perfectly ripe raspberries, strawberries and plums all marry cracked black pepper, allspice and lavender. It has a strength of flavor and graceful elegance to it. Absolutely delicious barely a year after harvest, this will improve a lot over the short term and be awesome for many years. Drink 2020-2030.
2017 marks the first vintage Bedrock has made “Evangelho” wine as the vineyard owner, having purchased it in the summer of 2017. Already experienced with the vineyard, having made “Evangelho” since 2011, the 2017 marks a new chapter for the vineyard and Bedrock Wine Cellars.
