Distinctive, almost quirky, this is wonderful to drink. Floral raspberry and spice box aromas lead to a range of flavors, with tart wild berry, licorice, soy and mineral. The tannins are ripe, but have a light grip on the finish. Zinfandel, Carignane, Mourvèdre and Alicante Bouschet. Drink now through 2022. (TF)
Opaque ruby. High-pitched aromas of black raspberry, lavender and musky herbs. Juicy, precise red berry flavors have very good depth but also show an elegant quality, with a bright mineral spine. A spicecake nuance adds an exotic touch to the long, sappy, gently tannic finish, which repeats the raspberry note. Morgan told me that he doesn't know the exact percentage breakdown of the varieties in this blend but says that it's roughly 40% zinfandel, 25% mourvedre and 25% carignane, with the rest a mix of assorted white grapes.
The 2011 Evangelho Heritage Wine, from a site in Contra Costa County planted in the 1880s, is a model of elegance and restraint. Fresh red berries, flowers, crushed flowers, spices and mint all waft from the glass, but ultimately it is the wine's textural finesse and silkiness that stand out most. The understated style is quite feminine and at times even a bit fragile. Zinfandel, Carignane and Mourvedre form the backbone of this red field blend. (AG)
