2011 three Evangelho Zinfandel Contra Costa County

NEW RELEASE: 1/18/14

This Zinfandel is sourced from ancient vines in Contra Costa County which has been in the hands of the same family for three generations (over 70 years). In 1964 Frank Evangelho took over farming this vineyard from his dad Manuel. I consider Frank one of the most meticulous and passionate growers I know. 

The 2011 Evangelho Zinfandel is a blend of 83% Zinfandel, 13% Petite Sirah, 2% Mataro, 1% Carignane, and 1% Alicante Bouschet.There is a concentration of ripe blackberries and spice with a minerality (dusty berry) sneaking through. Quite the favorite among three staff! Cheers! Enjoy now, or feel free to age for 5-7 years.
