2017 Bedrock Wine Co. Evangelho Vineyard Heritage Red | Contra Coasta County California 750ml

Zinfandel, Mataro, and field blend

Following our purchase of the vineyard in the spring, 2017 was the first year we had full control over farming at Evangelho. This wine, though possessing the characteristic suaveness of the site, does possess a trace more density than years past - likely due to the additional thinning passes we made. It was also an exceptional year for Mataro in a generally very strong year at the site, and the variety makes up over 30% of the blend. As such, this has some wonderful savory aromatics that balance and complicate the courtly fruit - upon opening a bottle of 2015 recently, I was struck by an exotic curry powder / garam masala note starting to come forth. Aged predominately in 600 gallon foudre and large format barrels, this wine saw very little new oak as we wanted the delicate complexities of the site to show. Drink 2019-2030+. | Morgan Twain Peterson for Bedrock Wine Co.

Distinctive, showing briary complexity, with deep and expressive smoky anise, black cherry, black olive and green peppercorn flavors that build toward refined tannins. | 94 points, Wine Spectator
